We’re Southern Research.

We’ve created seven drugs that are helping win the war on cancer. More are on the way.

When HIV threatened the world’s future, we helped develop a course of treatment that changed the course of history. We’re creating better ways for you to have cleaner air and water. Our technologies help men and women in uniform remain safe overseas. We’re developing methods to transform plants into carbon fiber cars that will get 80 mpg. We’re a team of 500 scientists and engineers. We’re taking on the world’s hardest problems –– and solving them.
