At Novo Nordisk, we believe in change. We are parents, colleagues, neighbors and friends — people living with the complexities of serious diseases. And we believe in the combination of science and soul to help nurture each other back to good health.

For more than 100 years, we have been driving change to defeat diabetes, which has given us the experience and capability to help defeat other serious chronic diseases, including obesity, hemophilia and growth hormone disorders. 

We work for a future where lives are not limited—and we do so by pioneering scientific breakthroughs, expanding access to our medicines and working to prevent and ultimately cure the diseases we treat.

From our labs to our factory floors, we are discovering and developing innovative biological medicines and making them accessible to patients who need them.

It's our way. It's the Novo Nordisk Way.

We are a proud life science company united by a common job to discover better treatments for people living with a serious chronic disease. 

Our industry is dynamic. And the scientific understanding of the diseases we treat and the people living with them, improves every day. This is a constant reminder that what got us to where we are today is not necessarily what will make us successful in the future. 

As an employer, we recognize the need to embrace experimentation and strive for diversity and inclusion to help make better decisions by ensuring that multiple perspectives are considered.

Together, we’re life changing.

We work in close collaboration with leading universities and biotech companies worldwide to collaborate and speed up new drug discovery.

We continuously seek new partners with whom we share complementary capabilities and mutual interests, and openly share novel peptide and protein analogues, and antibodies for preclinical research.

We offer easy and free access to selected high-quality and well-characterised compounds to curious and passionate scientists from around the world.
