Our research in Basel

At the Basel site, employees work in the fields of Oncology, Neuroscience, Infectious Diseases, Rare Diseases, and Ophthalmology, joined by colleagues from research & clinical operations, research informatics, and our strategy group. Also based in Basel are our development groups which represent the range of expertise needed to run clinical trials, including clinical research and exploratory development, clinical science, safety science, and regulatory affairs.

A new home is currently being built for pRED - the new Roche Innovation Center Basel - as part of the Roche Basel site. As of 2024, we will bring our research community, which at the moment is distributed all over the Basel site, under one state-of-the-art roof.

Institute of Human Biology

The Roche Innovation Center Basel is also home of The Institute of Human Biology (IHB), dedicated to research on human biology and human model systems such as organoids. Roche Pharmaceutical Research and Early Development (pRED) established the IHB to take maximum advantage of the scientific and research expertise in both academia and the pharmaceutical industry, it will bring them closer together using human model systems to better predict a drug’s validity, and so translate pioneering science into breakthroughs for patients.
