Cuts at Bristol-Myers Squibb
I'm told that BMS is cutting scientific staff today in New Jersey as they refocus some of their therapeutic areas. More details as I get them (or in the comments below).
Update: there are cuts in the metabolic disease area. The company apparently feels that traditional diabetes drug discovery has become a challenging area, both because it's become increasingly well-served and because the regulatory/clinical path has become much more difficult in recent years. . .
Update #2: the company has now confirmed that it has eliminated "fewer than 100" positions, but is giving no further details. In lieu of those, it has chosen, like so many other organizations, to inform the world that it ". . .is strategically evolving the company’s Research focus to ensure the delivery of a sustainable, innovative drug pipeline in areas of serious unmet medical need and potential commercial growth," and that it "is aligning and building internal capabilities. . ." In case you were wondering.
