When it comes to outsmarting cancer, we believe we’re brighter together. Guided by a commitment to evidence-based practice and integrity in research, we’re proud of our collaborative research approach that is dedicated to shedding light on the unsolved problems in oncology and improving lives for patients with cancer.

Through scientific innovation and collaboration, Boehringer Ingelheim is committed to discovering and developing novel anti-cancer agents that address unmet needs across a broad range of solid and haematological malignancies. We’re driven by a passion to improve the lives of patients who are battling cancer and a determination for cancer to eventually be treated as a chronic condition. Two agents are currently approved in many countries for specific NSCLC sub-types and the oncology portfolio is supported by a strong early pipeline. As part of a unique research approach, our active partnering strategy aims to further strengthen our presence in this key therapeutic area.

The ‘Let’s Collaborate’ initiative launched by Boehringer Ingelheim in Oncology is the guiding ethos directing the company’s commitment to oncology and to improving the future of cancer patients. This principle recognises that collaboration is fundamental to making a difference to patients’ lives. Working together connects, potentiates and enhances ideas, research and education. “Let’s Learn”, an extension of this initiative, is an invitation to all healthcare professionals working in oncology to share experiences, exchange ideas, and learn together, in order to advance the common goal of improving the outlook for cancer patients.
