what we do

For more than a century, MSD has been inventing medicines and vaccines for many of the world’s most challenging diseases. Our resolute efforts in medical research and development promote a better life for patients around the world.  We believe that the next breakthrough is just around the corner. The world of drug discovery and development is rapidly changing and Finland is a driving force behind that change.

The future of healthcare is built on digital health data and genomics. MSD develops personalized treatments right here in Finland, where we have comprehensive health registries, unique genomic data deposits and legislation. With more personalized medicine, we can soon prevent and treat diseases that have so far received less attention.

Our investment to Finland has been and will remain strong. Through clinical trials we invest in average 7,5 million euros annually in Finland. We continuously seek business deals and partners to improve health in Finland and globally as well as to co-create better healthcare system.
