We are Roche
Turning today's science into tomorrow's solutions.
A tradition of improving lives
Throughout our 125 year history, Roche has grown into one of the world’s largest biotech companies, as well as a leading provider of in-vitro diagnostics and a global supplier of transformative innovative solutions across major disease areas. Our commitment to our people, partners, stakeholders and, most importantly, our patients remains as strong as it was on the first day of our journey. We focus on finding new medicines and diagnostics and establishing data-based insights that evolve the practice of medicine and help patients live longer, better lives.
We are a pioneer in personalized healthcare, are driven by science and our ambition of delivering better outcomes, for more patients faster. We focus on fitting treatments to patients; providing the right therapy for the right patient to ensure the best response at the right time for the right value. Our approach combines our rich expertise in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics with expanded data science capabilities to drive more effective and efficient research and enable better therapeutic decisions for patients.
At Roche, patients are at the heart of everything we do. We are acutely aware that, no matter how innovative and effective a medicine may be, it is meaningless if those who need it are unable to access it. That is why we are committed to facilitating rapid, broad, sustainable access to our innovations, on a global scale. We strive towards converting today’s knowledge into tomorrow’s therapies.
Celebrating what’s always been at the heart of all we do – Life.
Life is our purpose and the core of everything we do at Roche. Each day, our bold science, breakthrough medicines and innovative diagnostic solutions improve the lives of countless people worldwide. This is our 125 year legacy. It is also our promise for the future. On our 125-year anniversary, we see every reason to celebrate. Because life is about celebration – whether creating new memories that resonate for years or pausing to reflect on the small precious moments of our past. In 2021, we celebrate our history, our culture and the enduring purpose that guides Roche’s next 125 years toward a sustainable, healthy future. This year, and for the next 125 years, we Celebrate Life. Roche has been at the forefront of improving patients’ lives for more than a century.
