The UK is a life sciences superpower. Its exceptional strength in the research and production of world-class medicines and vaccines has developed over many decades out of a strong science base, open approach to foreign investment in pharmaceuticals, a skilled manufacturing workforce, and robust culture of protecting innovation through intellectual property (IP) rights. Its regulators are recognised as among the most experienced and sophisticated in the world.
The Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry
Creating trade policy for a life sciences superpower
The ABPI exists to make the UK the best place in the world to research, develop and use new medicines and vaccines. We represent companies of all sizes who invest in discovering the medicines of the future.
Our members supply cutting-edge treatments that improve and save the lives of millions of people. We work in partnership with Government and the NHS so patients can get new treatments faster and the NHS can plan how much it spends on medicines.
Every day, we partner with organisations in the life sciences community and beyond to transform lives across the UK.
