Bris­tol-My­ers part­ners with Park­er In­sti­tute, CRI on a next-gen twist on trans­la­tion­al R&D

Bris­tol-My­ers Squibb is team­ing up with the grow­ing vir­tu­al net­work of sci­en­tists at the Park­er In­sti­tute for Can­cer Im­munother­a­py to ex­pand its fo­cus on an al­ready thick pipeline of im­muno-on­col­o­gy pro­grams.

The 300-plus sci­en­tists who make up the Park­er In­sti­tute — the non­prof­it set up by Face­book mogul Sean Park­er — will now see their prover­bial tool­box grow as Bris­tol-My­ers kicks in on a three-way pact that al­so in­cludes the Can­cer Re­search In­sti­tute. And a top re­searcher at Park­er says that this is just the first of many such in­dus­try col­lab­o­ra­tions, as Park­er’s group looks to ramp up trans­la­tion­al work on a range of new can­cer drugs.
