Exelixis, Inc. was founded and incorporated in 1994, and we are currently based in South San Francisco, California. Exelixis, from the Greek word for “evolution,” is a biopharmaceutical company committed to the discovery, development and commercialization of new medicines to improve care and outcomes for people with cancer.
Over the past fifteen years, we have established a broad development platform, laying the foundation for our continued efforts to bring new therapies for cancer to patients in need. The history of our lead compounds, cabozantinib and cobimetinib, tells the story of our evolution as a company. Each of these compounds was discovered in our own laboratories and advanced by us into clinical development.<
