About us

The Roche has been headquartered in Basel ever since it was founded in 1896. The Corporate Executive Committee, the Board of Directors and all global functions are located here. Basel is also home to both the Pharmaceuticals and Diagnostics global headquarters, and is one of the most important hubs for the research and development of novel medical solutions worldwide.

Our company was founded on the idea that entrepreneurship and scientific research can improve human health. This approach has allowed us to become the world’s largest biotech company, the global leader in oncology, the leading provider of in vitro diagnostics, and a pioneer in personalised healthcare.

Over 11 400* women and men from over 100 different countries – with different cultural and professional backgrounds and different ways of thinking – work in Basel and Kaiseraugst alone. It is our joint commitment and ideas that drive our success as a healthcare, doing now what patients need next.
