– I wish we could solve the problem of diabetes in my lifetime – even if that sounds strange as this is where we make our living. But if it can be done, we must be the ones to do it.
With all our technological progress it must surely be possible to cure diabetes, and with all our knowledge and expertise it would be a crime if we did not try to find the solution. After all, being there for our patients is our express goal, and we know that their greatest wish is good health. So we must – and indeed want to – do our utmost to solve the riddle and then we’ll have to find another way of making our living.

Lars Rebien Sørensen, President and CEO, Novo Nordisk A/S
