Reimagining medicine in cancer
We have the passion and the people to help transform lives as we pursue treatments for patients.
Core disease areas
At Novartis, we push the limits of science to develop innovative therapies. These therapies have the potential to be new foundations for cancer care in areas with great unmet need.
Novartis aims to tackle breast cancer with bold science, collaboration, and a passion for transforming patient care. We take a bold approach to our research by including patient populations who are often neglected in clinical trials, identifying new pathways or mutations that may play a role in disease progression, and developing therapies to help extend and improve the lives of patients.
Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers worldwide, accounting for more than 2 million new cases diagnosed each year. Novartis is committed to helping the lung cancer community by advancing the science to drive new treatments for lung cancer.
We are harnessing the innovation of our world-class scientists, strategic partnerships, and one of the industry’s most competitive pipelines to explore the potential of our targeted therapies to address unmet needs in prostate cancer. Our goal is to reduce the global disease burden, extend the lives of patients with prostate cancer, and elevate current standards of care.
