Description

No other global pharmaceutical company is focused solely on the brain. Lundbeck’s global legacy in neuroscience goes back six decades, and with it comes a tremendous level of expertise, commitment and energy – not to mention, responsibility to patients. We are radically changing the future, investing in long-term plays in research. As we define tomorrow, there is no question that the here and now is critical to bridge the future. Therefore, we continue to bring forward therapies to address symptomatic improvements to help people live better lives, while simultaneously pursuing disease-modifying treatments in pursuit of a cure. In fact, in the past seven years, Lundbeck has launched four neurology products addressing rare epilepsies and movement disorders.

Lundbeck operates within a unique corporate ownership structure: our company is 70% owned by a foundation established by the wife of our founder to ensure our continued ability to conduct difficult and time-intensive research. The Lundbeck Foundation contributes nearly $100 million to life sciences research each year and an additional 1 million euro for The Brain Prize to advance neuroscience research.
