Who We Are

BMC Communications is a boutique public relations and corporate communications agency focused exclusively on life sciences.

From early clinical data through regulatory approvals and commercial launch, we help our clients powerfully articulate and differentiate their science, pipelines and unique value proposition to investors, media, patients, and the scientific and medical communities. We provide strategic counsel and the full range of communications services, including:

  • messaging/positioning;
  • media outreach to advance corporate and clinical milestones;
  • financial communication;
  • issues management;
  • corporate, product and patient websites;
  • advocacy relationship building;
  • disease education and awareness;
  • social media campaigns;
  • executive thought leadership, graphic design, and more.

Our working premise is that if you don’t define your company or product or category—someone else will. We know what it takes to gain exposure and build credibility—and offer our clients the kind of deep, engaged partnership that can sustain it.

Please contact us or come by to see us at our offices in New York’s Greenwich Village.
