Focus Areas

We strive to use science and our deep expertise in some of the most difficult-to-treat cancers to identify opportunities to improve patient outcomes. AbbVie's scientists and researchers are using their expertise in medicinal chemistry, protein engineering, translational biology and clinical development to explore agents with novel mechanisms of action that may disrupt cancer development and growth across multiple tumor types.

Pathways & Approaches

AbbVie has been involved in oncology research, discovery and development for more than 20 years. Our team members combine their deep understanding of cancer and the ability of most cancer cells to evade apoptosis with state-of-the-art technologies to research, validate and target specific molecular pathways. This allows us to discover and develop innovative therapies that aim to disturb the natural progression of cancer cells.
