The new office adds further strength to Shionogi’s European capabilities, as we continue on our ambitious growth journey”.

Shionogi has a long heritage in the development and marketing of anti-infectious disease treatments, as well as therapeutic areas such as haematology, women’s health, pain and central nervous system disorders. The office opening event coincides with World Anti-Microbial Resistance Awareness Week (WAAW) which Shionogi marked on Friday 18th November by participating in the World Health Organisation’s Go Blue campaign and lighting up the new Amsterdam office with blue lights.

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”.
