Innovation & Science
We believe innovative drugs are,
in a sense, “hand-made.”
The most important thing is to trust in people's skills and expertise.
Contributing to better health worldwide
- researchers at Otsuka Pharmaceutical choose research themes often overlooked
by others and pursue their research with passion and conviction.

Otsuka takes a holistic approach to people's health and well-being through its two core businesses of pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. Aiming to find cures for diseases and to maintain and promote people's health, we continue to take the untraveled path in research and development.
Principal Research & Development Facilities
Otsuka has a global network of R&D facilities for innovative product research and development to help find cures for disease and support better health.
Otsuka Pharmaceutical collaborates actively with leading-edge academia and venture companies, in addition to using conventional drug discovery methods. This open sharing of ideas enables us to develop unique compounds.
Otsuka’s Open Innovation
As part of our inquisitive research culture, Otsuka Pharmaceutical also enters into “horizontal collaborations” in which we harmonize with, as equals, bioventures and academic institutions. Aligning our own drug discovery resources with external knowledge and technologies multiplies our collective capacity for pathbreaking innovation.
