Newly combined with Baxalta, Shire is now the leading global biotechnology company focused on serving people affected by rare diseases and highly specialized conditions. These diseases are often misunderstood, under-diagnosed, and potentially life-threatening.
Our 24,000 employees come to work every day with a common purpose: to develop and deliver breakthrough therapies that enable people with life-altering conditions to live their lives to the fullest.
At Shire, we are dedicated to expanding, building and sustaining leadership across our key therapeutic areas through our extensive portfolio of products, innovative pipeline and collaborative approach to working with diverse partners around the globe. We strive to earn and keep the trust of our patients, their families and physicians, and all others who support and advance their care.
Working together, the possibilities for our patients, healthcare partners and employees are unprecedented, with significant growth potential for our shareholders.
We have a history of doing things differently.
Shire has had a presence in Ireland since 1994. Today the company is located in the iconic Miesian Plaza building in city centre Dublin.
Shire is committed to sound corporate governance principles, practices, and policies.
