At the centre of life sciences is the ambition, and ability, to
change people’s lives for the better.
The scale and enormity of the work completed by this industry, the
scale and importance of the learning, is dizzying – and never ending.
Medical discovery involves an important ecosystem of collaborators
and individuals whose knowledge, skills and resources combine to bring
medicines to the millions.
Their work has a legacy effect that will last the rest of human
history. We all know someone who has benefitted from this ambition,
but the people behind it often go unsung.
The AbbVie Discovery Series goes behind the scenes on exactly what
it takes to transform an initial scientific breakthrough into a
medicine that has the potential to change lives. We shine a light on
those individuals who have dedicated their lives to solving complex
health problems and pay homage to the remarkable impact of their work.
In this episode we unpack the story of scientific discovery and
medicine development in rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis has been known
to mankind for thousands of years. And yet, in our lifetime,
innovation in medicine has completely changed the care and treatment
of it. Forever.
