About Astellas

At Astellas we are making treatments that matter to people.

We are tackling the toughest health challenges putting the patient at the heart of every move we make.

Our global vision for Patient Centricity is to support the development of innovative health solutions through a deep understanding of the patient experience.

We believe all staff have a role to play in creating a patient-centric culture and integrating an awareness of the patient into our everyday working practices, regardless of our role, team or division.

We have developed ground-breaking, innovative medicines in immunology, oncology and urology. Our medicines are extending and saving the lives of cancer patients, making transplantation possible and improving the quality of life for those living with conditions where needs are often overlooked.

We take a... patient-focused approach, that allows us to convert brilliant early science into treatments and solutions that directly improve and save patients’ lives.
