About the Johnson & Johnson - Janssen 

Johnson & Johnson is a company committed to doing good for the world. We blend Heart, Science and Ingenuity to profoundly change the trajectory of health for humanity. 


At the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, we are working to create a world without disease. Transforming lives by finding new and better ways to prevent, intercept, treat and cure disease inspires us. We bring together the best minds and pursue the most promising science. 


At Janssen we are working toward a New Paradigm in Oncology

One of the innovative ways that we approach the cancer challenge is via cancer interception. We are striving to achieve a more robust understanding of the mechanisms underlying the transition of normal cells to a pre-malignant state, with the goal of developing products capable of interrupting the carcinogenic process. Our aim is to diagnose and intercept cancer at its earliest stages, when pre-malignancies are less complex and less resistant to therapy, and patients are healthier and more likely to benefit.


Given the complexity of cancer and the fact that different cancers evolve in different ways and can take multiple forms, we don’t expect to find a one-size-fits-all approach. Rather, we are pursuing specific solutions for cancer types and subtypes targeted by our Disease Area Strongholds with a focus on those where the need – and the opportunity for impact – are greatest.


Our Disease Area Stronghold teams focus on hematologic malignancies, prostate cancer, and lung cancer.
