Dr. Hanasaki said, “At Shionogi we are proud to have delivered treatments in areas of major public health concern and are steadfast in our pursuit to find even better solutions using our advanced scientific know-how, talented people and passion. A strong presence in Europe is vital to support our global vision of building innovation platforms to shape the future of healthcare, and I am delighted to be visiting the new office and forging new connections with the Netherlands business and science community”.
