Drug Discovery & Development

Since we began our drug-discovery and development activities in early 2002, we have filed Investigational New Drug (IND) applications and progressed multiple internally developed proprietary compounds into clinical development. In late 2011, we received our first US Food and Drug Administration approval for Jakafi® (ruxolitinib), a JAK1 and JAK2 inhibitor.

Incyte has an exceptional team of drug discovery and development scientists led by distinguished executives with proven records of success and many scientific and clinical achievements. We employ only the best and those who adhere to the highest standards of scientific and clinical rigor, and we resource our programs for success. We have a strong discovery team that is tightly integrated with all disciplines, including development, regulatory, and commercial operations. Our therapeutic focus is primarily on oncology.
