• Our Science

    Our scientists are in search of therapies that aim to transform the standard of care for cancer patients

Our science extends beyond the borders of our laboratories. We work to build on what we have accomplished, to make existing therapies easier and more effective, and ultimately to help restore the Magic of Normal for our patients and their loved ones. We also collaborate with research and academic institutions to pool our expertise, insight and resources to help create new breakthroughs for patients.

We are studying IMBRUVICA’s unique mechanism of action against tumor cells and in the immune system in up to 10 different diseases over the next 5+ years, both as single agent and in combination with a wide variety of other therapies. Our research also extends beyond IMBRUVICA, as our scientists work to discover new small molecules and biologics to advance the standard of care even further for patients with B-cell malignancies.

As an AbbVie company, our scientists are able to access a wide array of resources, scientific opportunities and expertise outside of our headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, adding to our overall research capability.

Areas of Focus

We are committed to fully exploring the potential of IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib) as a therapy for additional diseases with great unmet medical need.
