At GSK, we want to find new medicines and vaccines in ways that are faster, more effective and more predictable. We start with what matters most, the science. Our approach to R&D focuses on science related to the immune system, the use of human genetics, and advanced technologies. Our pipeline currently comprises of more than 60 vaccines and medicines across four core therapeutic areas including oncology, infectious diseases, immunology / respiratory and HIV. We have pivotal study starts in 2021 for our RSV vaccine in older adults, COVID-19 assets, long-acting anti-IL-5 antagonist, daprodustat, and dostarlimab. In oncology, momentum is building with 15 potential medicines in trials, including nine immuno-oncology and three cell therapies. We give our scientists the freedom to own the process. Our scientists often use genetic data to help us understand the root cause of disease. We steer the research where the data shows we can do most good. If a project doesn't pan out, we take what we've learned and apply it elsewhere. Technology can help us find patterns in genetic data better and faster. We're using machine learning to unlock the potential of complex genetic data with new levels of speed, precision, and scale. And we're one of the first biopharmaceutical companies to have created an in-house AI lab dedicated to drug development. Even with the knowledge, tools, and resources within GSK, there's always a benefit to new perspectives. That's why we're increasingly partnering with and hiring outstanding people from cutting edge fields like tech, data-science and academia. In 2018, GSK formed an exclusive, highly innovative collaboration with 23andMe, the world's leading consumer genetics and research company. Other partners include: the Altius Institute; the UK Biobank, which is generating anonymized genetic sequence data from 500,000 volunteers; and the Open Targets Consortium, the mindset and approach of smaller, more agile startups.
