    GlaxoWellcome and Allen and Hanbury are all part of GlaxoSmithkline, which was formed a few years ago from the merger between glaxoWellcome and SmithklineBeecham.

    Proctor and Gamble

    There's also peeps like

    Novartis
    Bristol-Myers Squibb
    Bayer
    Pharmacia
    Johnson&Johnson
    Abbott Laboratories
    Leo
    Aventis
    Pfizer
    American Home Products
    Eli Lilly
    Schering-Plough

    AstraZenica (swalloewd up Boots Pharma about 5 years ago)
    Roche
    Merck and Co.
    Merck Pharmaceuticals
    DeNovo
    Bayer
    Watson

    these are just a few of the bigger pharma firms that I can think of. There are also literally millions of smaller scale start up research companies out there.

    There are loats of other non=pharma research companies out their that do contract research. Some of the big ones that spring to mind are:
    LGC limited
    Central Science Laboratory
    Covance

    Are you talking Pharmaceutical or Research? the Pharmacueticals do do research, but most of their data is 'top secret' and 'Commercial in Confidence' so isn't out in the public domain. For true 'research' organisations, look at MRC, CRUK, BBSRC, PPARC, etc.
