Calvin is currently serving as a CMC leader and the Allogeneic Drug Product Process Development lead at Bristol Myers Squibb in Seattle, WA. He joined BMS via the acquisition of Celgene and Juno Therapeutics. As an early member of Juno during its startup period, he was part of the PD team that developed the initial manufacturing process that later became the company’s expansion platform.

Calvin has a strong interest in process technologies having developed and integrated numerous systems during his time at Juno, including cell separation, gene editing, and cell washing technologies.
