Working with the TIG team and therapeutic focus area scientists, the intern will identify a topic of interest to both intern and research staff and will utilize a variety of public and commercial data mining tools and databases to assemble information on protein targets and/or drug target families, update corporate knowledge databases with relevant biological information/links and create customized data visualization dashboards. The student will be responsible for searching, assembling and archiving information on drug targets., disease biology and current therapies, and will create materials that facilitate communication of their findings to all research areas of the company. At the conclusion of the project, the intern will review their findings for company scientists.
