Full time
Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.

As part of the Precision Medicine team and reporting to Head of Precision Medicine, this Director will lead implementation of a biomarker strategic vision in development programs. In this role, they will develop and operationally implement Precision Medicine strategies to support both early and late stage drug development. Clinical technologies applied include: biomarkers, pharmacogenetics, as well as clinical and other physiological testing devices. Such technologies will be applied to goals of: enhancing our understanding of indications at a cellular and molecular level, biomarker discovery and qualifying new biomarkers and approaches for expediting proof-of-concept for new drug candidates, optimization of label claims for later stage candidates, and enabeling personalized medicine principles to be applied, as appropriate, in full development. The role requires in-depth knowledge of clinical assay development and validation approaches and applications in drug development, detailed literature and technology reviews, consultations with experts in multiple therapeutic areas, understanding of logistical and regulatory factors pertaining to clinical technologies, and close collaborations with research colleagues, (e.g. Discovery Research, Molecular Profiling, DNA Core, Regeneron Genetics Center), development team leadership, clinical operations, colleagues from allied companies, and senior management.


• In partnership with the Head of Precision Medicine, lead implementation of program-level strategic vision that will broadly enable advances in target identification, indication selection, early indication of biological activity and patient stratification/selection

• Provide strategic leadership and influence cross-functional teams to prioritize and execute a compelling Precision Medicine vision that will broadly enable advances in target identification, indication selection, early indication of biological activity and patient stratification/selection

• Collaborate with Discovery Research and product development teams to facilitate appropriate incorporation of Precision Medicine strategies for molecules in discovery phases (leading to candidate molecule selection) or development.

• Represent Regeneron and work with colleagues from allied companies to develop and implement Precision Medicine strategies for partnered programs.
