EMD Serono

We are the biopharmaceutical division of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. We focus exclusively on specialty care - integrating cutting-edge science with industry-leading patient support.

At EMD Serono, we recognized the potential of specialty pharmaceuticals and patient care long ago, and have been dedicated to delivering on their promise ever since.

We have a legacy of both trying to find solutions to hard to treat conditions, as well as developing patient assistance programs that help ensure that those who need our therapies are able to access them.

As one of the top five U.S. companies exclusively focused on specialty care, we see our innovation as a matter of balancing science with emotion – integrating our top minds in research and development with the insights from patients and health care practitioners confronting real- world concerns.
