Daiichi Sankyo Cancer Enterprise

The vision of Daiichi Sankyo Cancer Enterprise is to leverage our world-class, innovative science and push beyond traditional thinking in order to create meaningful treatments for patients with cancer. We are dedicated to transforming science into value for patients, and this sense of obligation informs everything we do.

Anchored by our Antibody Drug Conjugate (ADC) and Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) franchises, our cancer pipeline includes more than 20 ADCs, monoclonal antibodies and small molecules stemming from our powerful research engines: our two laboratories for biologic/immuno-oncology and small molecules in Japan, and Plexxikon Inc., our small molecule structure-guided R&D center in Berkeley, CA. 

We are committed to identifying the right resources and collaborations to become a leader in oncology. In addition to identifying ways to accelerate the development of compounds currently in our pipeline, we will continue to discover new compounds utilizing our in-house science expertise, collaborate with industry and academic partners, and acquire or in-license compounds that align with our strategy.
