JOB FUNCTION: Biometrics
ADDITIONAL LOCATIONS: South San Francisco, California, United States of America. Welwyn
Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
Rapid technological advances (e.g. next generation sequencing technology, electronic medical records) are resulting in a dramatic increase in the volume and diversity of scientific data (clinical, RWD, genomics) that is being generated both internally and externally. This data is key to understanding disease subtypes, and drug response of patients within certain molecular subgroups, allowing us to develop new medicines and companion diagnostic tests more effectively and efficiently.
The Enhanced Data and Insights Sharing (EDIS) initiative is a key enabler of PHC 2.0, accelerating learning and insights generation across Research and Development. A key capability which we have identified as being critical to the success of EDIS is the integration and sharing of biomedical patient data across the organization. This capability requires the creation of a new Data Integrator role within Pharma Development Biometrics.
Data Integrators are skilled data scientists who are able to both understand and manipulate highly complex clinical and high dimensional biomarker data sets (e.g., genotyping and gene expression data) in order to create analysis ready merged datasets as needed from a variety of data types (e.g. clinical trials, molecules or indications). The Data Integration Specialist is responsible for leading and executing data integration solutions in support of multiple programs within a disease area and across disease area projects.
The main responsibilities will include:
