Technology And Materials Requests
Bristol-Myers Squibb considers Technology / Materials requests for Non-Clinical research from all therapeutic areas, and gives priority to proposals that support our medical plans in the following therapeutic areas: cardiovascular/metabolics, neuroscience, cancer, immunology and virology.
Technology / Materials requests include but are not necessarily limited to:
- cell lines
- transgenic animals
- nucleic acid constructs
- purified proteins
- engineered bacteria & viruses
Term & Conditions
- Rationale. The research must address a legitimate medical or scientific question affecting the use of a Bristol-Myers Squibb drug and not duplicate other planned or conducted research unless justified on a scientific or medical basis.
- Sponsor. The applicant must be qualified and capable of conducting the proposed research in compliance with Good Laboratory Practices (GLP). The sponsor must comply with all applicable legal and regulatory requirements and must not be the subject of any legal or regulatory restrictions or sanctions.
- Medical appropriateness of proposed research. The proposed research must be intended to produce results which could lead towards future clinical testing.
- Scientific validity. The proposed research procedures must fulfill the stated objectives of the research.
- Ethical considerations. The research must be designed to meet ethical guidelines concerning animal use (if applicable) in research.
- Financial support. Funding requests must reasonably reflect the cost and effort involved and should not be used to defray normal operating expenses of the sponsor-researcher or institution that are not directly related to the supported research. An executed agreement must be in place prior to any research commencing.
- All applicable regulatory requirements must be observed.
- Publication of research results. The results of the research will be collected and analyzed and a report of the research will be prepared and planned for potential publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
- Priority. We consider requests for research in all therapeutic areas, and give priority to proposals in the cardiovascular/metabolics, neuroscience, cancer, immunology and virology therapeutic areas.
All support is awarded at the sole discretion of Bristol-Myers Squibb based on the criteria set forth above.
