Our mission is clear — we discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases.

Our sense of urgency is real — we work every day to push the boundaries of scientific discovery and to make a meaningful difference in the lives of patients. We are committed to developing a 21st century workforce that is powerfully diverse and broadly inclusive, capable of discovering and developing important new medicines for patients around the world. It’s what we do. It’s why we do it.

“At Bristol-Myers Squibb, we are looking forward to an exciting future. We will build on the strong foundationof 2018 to grow our business and to help more patients. We have great medicines. We have great people.”

– Giovanni Caforio, M.D.,
Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer

We come to work every day with one mission in mind: to discover, develop, and deliver transformational medicines to help patients facing serious diseases. This is what we do. This is who we are.

In 2018, performance was strong across the company and created great momentum for our business. We expanded the indications of our oncology portfolio with the important approval of Opdivo plus low-dose Yervoy for the treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) in the U.S. and Europe. We reached an important milestone with Eliquis in the U.S., taking a leadership position in the prevention of stroke for patients with atrial fibrillation. We advanced a broad and deep pipeline in oncology, cardiovascular disease, fibrosis, and immunoscience. And we continued our efforts to be a good global citizen through our green initiatives, by investing in our local communities, and by supporting those in need.
