Reporting to the Head of Early-stage Parenteral Drug Product Development in the Global Drug Product Development organization (GDPD), you have the opportunity to significantly contribute to the roll-out of high-tech CMC development laboratories in the BDC and help shape the future of biotech drug product development . You will lead a team of talented scientists who are involved in all steps of a early-stage parenteral Drug Product development, including providing support to our R&D colleagues for selection of molecules with the best developability profile. The group will be in charge of formulation development of biotech molecules entering CMC (platform and non-platform constructs, as well as ADCs), using our state-of-the-art robotic platform, and process development once a stable formulation has been identified. You will be in charge of ensuring that a robust process is developed and transferred to our GMP clinical line. You will also ensure that (pre)clinical administration studies meet the requirements to administer a newly developed drug product to animals as well as humans. Your key responsibilities in this role are to contribute to the final phases of BDC roll-out by: Collaborating with digital team and robotic / automation scientists to help setting up formulation development workflows on an end-to-end robotic system; Interacting with other leads, department head and development/analytical scientists for setting up our future formulation and process development activities; Design and coordination of formulation and process development studies, as well as (pre)clinical administration studies.
