Generics R&D

In our generics R&D, there is much more to generics than meets the eye. We bring creativity, innovative thinking, and the ability to analyze, formulate and execute in a timely and effective manner. This is particularly true in the area of complex, hard to develop generics, where we deliver a real competitive edge.

Generics. More than Meets the Eye

Our generics R&D is closely integrated with our extensive clinical expertise in developing specialty and OTC products. This makes us the only global pharmaceutical company that has an integrated generic and specialty (branded) R&D capability.
With generics R&D and specialty R&D working hand-in-hand, this unique combination of strengths, capabilities and skills enables new ideas and improved innovation.

Our generics R&D group continues to develop an array of special delivery technologies ranging from extended-release to drug device combinations.
