Peter – Glaucoma

Healthcare systems are strained to the breaking point as our population ages. Farmland is diminishing as the population swells. Climate change is reducing crop yields as more people go hungry every day. Today, and in the decades to come, new solutions must be discovered to provide quality health and food for at least ten billion people.

We feel it is our responsibility to set new benchmarks

Leaps by Bayer is spearheading a movement to make paradigm-shifting advances in the life sciences – targeting the breakthroughs that could fundamentally change the world for the better. Much of what we are aiming to achieve is not yet possible. Setbacks and failures are to be expected in dealing with such ambitious targets.

But with a 150-year history in the life sciences and capabilities across healthcare and agriculture, Bayer is able to see the bigger picture. We feel it is our responsibility to set new benchmarks; to find the courage to begin where others resist; and to drive breakthrough innovation. And we will not do it alone: we will collaborate with the world’s smartest minds in biotech.
