Biologics Opportunities in Devens, MA
Biologics are increasingly important in the treatment of serious diseases and are a growing part of the Bristol-Myers Squibb portfolio of products and R&D pipeline. Bringing together biologics development and clinical and commercial manufacturing on one campus (Devens, Massachusetts) can help accelerate the development of these innovative medicines for patients worldwide.
Bristol-Myers Squibb biologics facility in Devens, Massachusetts
Bristol-Myers Squibb has made expanding its biologics manufacturing capacity and development capabilities a strategic priority. With a $280 million site expansion in 2016, Bristol-Myers Squibb has now invested more than $1 billion in its Devens, Massachusetts site. The recent project added two new buildings with a combined 200,000 square feet to the Devens campus:
- a Biologics Development Building for designing processes for the early production of investigational medicines, and
- a Clinical Manufacturing Building where investigational medicines will be produced to support clinical trials.
Both are new capabilities for Devens, a site that had previously focused solely on large-scale, bulk biologics manufacturing.
The expansion brings new capabilities, combining biologics process development, clinical manufacturing and commercial manufacturing in one facility to help accelerate the speed at which potential new therapies progress from development to commercial manufacturing.
