Investigator-initiated Trials

Celgene Corporation is committed to changing the course of human health through bold pursuits in science. The mission and purpose of the Investigator-Initiated program are to provide support for investigator-initiated research (“IITs”) in disease areas that help advance the medical and scientific knowledge of Celgene compounds.

BMS has decided to modify its COVID-19 ISR application process, changing from a rolling submission process to a time-period specific “Request for Proposal (RFP) process”. The submission period will be open from July 27th through August 15th, 2020.

  • The new process will be limited to COVID-19 concepts only.
  • Due to the alliance between Pfizer and BMS, COVID-19 concepts involving apixaban will continue with the existing review processes outside of this RFP.
  • All non COVID-19 proposals will continue their existing processes.
