Om Lundbeck

Lundbeck er et globalt farmaceutisk selskab, som er specialiseret i psykiatriske og neurologiske sygdomme. I mere end 70 år har vi været førende inden for forskning i neurovidenskab. Vores primære fokusområder er depression, skizofreni, Parkinsons sygdom og Alzheimers sygdom.

Det skønnes, at 700 millioner mennesker på globalt plan lever med psykiatriske og neurologiske sygdomme og alt for mange af dem lider på grund af utilstrækkelig behandling, diskrimination, færre arbejdsdage, tidlig pension og andre unødvendige konsekvenser. Vores daglige målsætning er at tilbyde personer med psykiatriske og neurologiske sygdomme en bedre behandling og dermed et bedre liv - vi kalder det Progress in Mind.
