A new collaboration between Bristol-Myers Squibb and the California Institute for Biomedical Research (Calibr) was announced today. The new collaboration aims to develop new small molecule anti-fibrotic therapies and includes an agreement that enables Bristol-Myers Squibb to develop, produce and commercialize the preclinical compounds that can result from this same collaboration. Carl Decicco, Ph.D., from Bristol-Myers Squibb said in a press release: “Bristol-Myers Squibb’s collaboration with Calibr further strengthens our Specialty portfolio and advances the company’s fibrotic diseases pipeline with the addition of this promising program.
