Mike Quigley, Vice President and Head, Tumor Microenvironment Modulation Thematic Research Center, recently made a cross-country move from Lawrenceville to Redwood City – a move he’s made before. Mike’s career with Bristol Myers Squibb started in Redwood City, where he worked for three years before heading east to be closer to family. Now, Mike is back in Redwood City to lead a translational team focused on understanding mechanisms of I-O resistance. His team, which comprises other East Coast transplants along with new hires from the Bay Area, will be working out of new state-of-the-art labs, which opened in the spring of 2018.
“Embedding our resistance team in Redwood City, which is an engine of I-O discovery, will facilitate fast, real-time decisions that can inform the science in earlier stages,” said Quigley.
