We have a great purpose, which is to help patients who are facing serious diseases, and that is why we do what we do every day.

Giovanni Caforio, M.D., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Patients are at the center of all we do

They inspire us. They are the reason we come to work each day. By focusing on patients and their families, we maintain a sense of urgency that compels us to work faster, smarter and better. And we are highly motivated knowing that there is always more we can do, with so many patients facing serious disease with limited or no treatment options.

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation promotes health equity and seeks to improve the health outcomes of populations disproportionately affected by serious diseases by strengthening healthcare worker capacity, integrating medical care and community-based supportive services and mobilizing communities in the fight against disease.

To enhance innovation in scientific research and pursue novel approaches to supporting patients with cancer, in 2015 Bristol-Myers Squibb France launched the Foundation for Immuno-Oncology Research. This organization funds projects at French public research institutes in four areas of focus, including basic research, clinical/translational research, public health/patient pathways and a special focus on pediatric cancer. The grants we fund are helping to support patients across the spectrum of care.
