GSK Oncology

GSK Oncology, the oncology division of the global healthcare company GSK, focuses on developing advanced treatments for blood cancers, women's cancers, and exploring new areas like immuno-oncology and synthetic lethality. They have strategically established their research hub in Zug, leveraging the robust life sciences ecosystem of the Greater Zurich Area to support their innovative efforts.

In August 2022, GSK established its Oncology Hub in Baar, building on its presence in the region that began with the acquisition of Tesaro in January 2019. The move to Baar was a strategic expansion to create more space for its growing team, which now includes over 90 dedicated employees. These professionals are engaged in crucial R&D functions such as Global Medical Affairs, Global Regulatory Affairs, and Clinical Research. Additionally, the hub houses roles in Global Pharmaceuticals and various enabling functions such as Legal, HR, Finance, Supply Chain, and Communications. And with nearly 30 nationalities represented in the workforce, the GSK Oncology Hub is truly diverse and international.

Switzerland offers an excellent quality of life, providing numerous professional opportunities as well as a supportive environment for families and personal pursuits.
