A Letter from Giovanni Caforio

The first year of our new company was truly a remarkable time in BMS history. I am proud of the significant accomplishments we made in the face of great adversity and change during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We created a leading biopharma company, a diversified company with leading medicines across oncology, hematology, immunology and cardiovascular. One with a broad and deep pipeline, and the financial flexibility to continue to invest in innovation. And one where the best people in the industry are committed to our mission to discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines to patients who need them.

Giovanni Caforio, M.D.
Board Chair and Chief Executive Officer
