Biotech entrepreneur Saurabh Saha moves to translational research chief at Bristol-Myers; Ex-GSK pharma chief Hussain switches to private equity
→ Bristol-Myers Squibb $BMY has hired Saurabh Saha to run their translation science group, which is responsible for triaging preclinical work of interest and steering the most promising programs toward the clinic.

Saha is staying in the Boston area, where Bristol-Myers is building a new R&D center.
