Patients and families

We believe patients deserve treatment advances that go beyond incremental progress, and we’re dedicated to advancing science and delivering new medicines with the goal of improving and extending patients’ lives. To help patients and their families, we support:

  • A patient council to help us incorporate the patient voice throughout the drug development process

  • The creation and distribution of patient education programs and resources that drive awareness and learning of cancer and rare disease

  • The work of patient advocacy organizations and their ability to impact communities globally

  • Access to our marketed therapies in the U.S., as well as support through the treatment journey, via our patient assistance program, YourBlueprint®

  • Access to our investigational therapies through our global early access programs

Every day, our teams commit to approach one another with respect and trust: a simple promise that fosters an inclusive and collaborative spirit. We’re cultivating the Blue Crew community to be their best and do their best work.

We support:

  • A culture of integrity with a comprehensive Compliance and Ethics Program that includes required training for all employees

  • Efforts to advance equity, diversity and inclusion, both at Blueprint Medicines and beyond. Through our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, we seek to spark dialogue, broaden perspective, strengthen connection and elicit action

  • Storytelling events to inspire and gain a greater understanding of one another on various topics, such as celebrating innovation and the impact of systemic racism

  • Social activities coordinated by our employee-led Culture Team, including team-building exercises, company outings, Bring Your Kids to Work Day and more
