Since Roche's founding in 1896, we have been committed to innovation and to being at the forefront of medical discovery. Today, with a strong foundation of Roche scientists and technical capabilities and a steadily expanding global research network including alliances with many of the world's leading respected research institutions and biotech companies, we are working to open up new horizons in healthcare.
In the U.S. alone, we invest more than $4 billion a year in the discovery and development of new products and technologies in diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. Our goal is to develop highly specific, clinically differentiated treatments. That search includes advances in disease detection that will contribute to a comprehensive approach to healthcare delivery.
