    Patient-focused Research and Development (R&D) is the heart of our business. GSK has a strong history and expertise in vaccines, and we are staying at the forefront of innovation in this field.

    For many years, vaccines have been used mainly to prevent diseases caused by infections, mostly in infants and children.

    Today, we are focused on developing vaccines for all stages of life, and we believe vaccines can also be used successfully to treat diseases and be therapeutic.

    These innovation trends have a strong impact on what we do in Research and Development. We take the best science, with the most impactful technologies and combine it with our GSK culture.

    Next to our existing portfolio of prophylactic vaccines and moving into the field of therapeutic vaccines, our R&D programme focuses on vaccines for diseases such as RSV, COPD and Meningitis.

    Another part of R&D targets diseases particularly prevalent in the developing world, including the World Health Organisation’s priority diseases - tuberculosis and malaria.
