Oncology is one of five key areas of focus for Janssen Research & Development; it has become increasingly important in recent years with the launch of such important medicines as ZYTIGA® (abiraterone acetate) and IMBRUVICA® (ibrutinib). We invite you to view this short video featuring Peter F. Lebowitz, M.D., Ph.D., head of oncology research & development for Janssen R&D. In it, he describes the strategy behind our cancer drug development as well as our approach to partnerships, which was also featured in the Wall Street Journal in 2014.
