The LEO Foundation was created in 1984 and assumed full ownership of LEO Pharma two years later. The LEO Foundation is an independent, private institution whose aim is to ensure the continuance of the LEO Pharma group of companies.
This makes LEO Pharma a stable place to work and provides the stability needed to plan focused, long-term research and development programmes for medicines and therapies addressing unmet patient needs. Foundation ownership also allows LEO Pharma to make fast decisions.
The Board of Trustees of the LEO Foundation are committed to the long-term success of LEO Pharma.
