GSK is a research-based pharmaceutical and healthcare company operating in more than 100 countries around the world. Our Mission is to improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer. As part of this commitment, we recognise the valuable role that our support of Investigator-Sponsored Studies (ISS) plays in fulfilling this mission. An ISS is a research effort where the sponsor of the work is an investigator, healthcare institution, or some form of medical network external to GSK and is seeking our support to conduct the work. This support can be in the form of product, funding, or a combination of both. Come to the GSK stand to find out more about how we can support your local Kiwi research.
