pSivida is committed to the development of drug delivery products in the healthcare sector, initially in ophthalmology and oncology. pSivida has revenues from marketed products having developed the only two FDA approved sustained release back of the eye treatments for chronic eye disease and are licensed to Bausch & Lomb.

QinetiQ (one of the largest R&D institutions in Europe) is pSivida's second largest shareholder.
