Welcome to the Roche Group’s corporate website. Take a little time to explore our site and learn more about one of the world’s great research-based healthcare companies.
Roche is a leading innovator in healthcare. We develop products offering real advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. And we are dedicated to making our products available to patients and health professionals around the world.
During the 100-plus years since its founding, Roche has pioneered many medical breakthroughs. Today our Diagnostics and Pharmaceuticals Divisions contribute on a broad range of fronts to improving people’s health and quality of life. As the world’s leading supplier of in vitro diagnostic systems and tests, we help guide sound clinical decision-making in virtually every patient-care setting, from hospitals to patients’ homes. In the Pharmaceuticals Division we are focusing our efforts on areas of significant and pressing unmet medical need. Areas like cancer, where we lead the industry both in innovations and in market share.
Proud as we are of our past and present achievements, however, what really excites us is the future.
We see a day when treatment choices will be based on a patient’s genetic makeup, not trial and error, and when treatments will be tailored to the biology of patients’ diseases, not symptoms. This is our vision of personalised medicine. Obviously, it is a vision that will take years of brilliant research to realise, and no one company can do it all alone. But we intend to play a leading role. The potential benefits in terms of better treatment outcomes, fewer harmful side effects and lower healthcare costs are well worth the effort.
Our focus on personalised medicine is an important part of the Roche story, but only a part. Here at our website you can discover much, much more about our company and our vision of the future. I invite you to take a close look.
