Translational Medicine at BMS

Translational medicine is a department within the Research and Early Development organization that facilitates the transition of drug candidates from early to late-stage clinical development, their approval and life cycle management. Early-stage translational development activities enable rational determination of dose-schedule and responsive patient populations, based on deep understanding of drug mechanism of action and disease segments. Late-stage translational development activities build upon the early work, additionally exploring mechanisms of resistance, rational drug combinations and product differentiation. The late-stage translational development function is responsible for the development of translational strategies to support the development, and maximize the potential, of BMS's therapies post-clinical proof-of-concept, including registrations and life-cycle management. Translational disease strategies in heme malignancies are derived from long term investments in developing data and deep expertise in disease biology, patient segments, immunodeficiencies and of therapeutic resistance to assist science driven strategies for the development of the heme pipeline.
