Novartis employees share a passion for life, a dedication to science and a commitment to find new treatments that will bring greater health and longer life to more people around the world.“As a company whose mission is to care and to cure, we believe nothing is more extraordinary than a normal life,” says Novartis CEO Joe Jimenez. “Something as simple as tying your shoes or driving yourself to work can be precious. But these normal, everyday functions are fragile and we often don't even notice them until they are taken away from us due to illness or aging. That's where we come in. Every day we fight to help people overcome health issues so they can live as normal a life as possible for as long as possible.”
The 127,724 men and women who are part of Novartis are dedicated to the discipline of science and the hope it brings to battle the threats of disease. This is demonstrated by the company’s commitment to research and development, which last year alone was a $9 billion investment. Today, more than 200 projects are in clinical development.

Taken together, they declare a common sense of purpose, a mission for serving humanity and a vision for creating a better future.
