Position Type
Part time
Our Early Clinical Development department is looking for a Summer Intern to join our team.
Project Description:

In the journey to create digital endpoints in clinical trials, REGN is collecting an increasing amount of data via wearable sensors or remote technology. Digital endpoints offer opportunities to improve what we know about patients' biologic processes and clinical functioning or responses to treatment, in both clinical trials and routine clinical care. In order to replace less reliable Clinical Outcomes Assessments (COAs) (e.g., Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) or observatory outcomes), more flexible data processing and analysis methods are needed to analyze these wearable sensor data. This project will focus on the standardization and pipelining of current wearable datasets, as well as on the development of novel analytical methods to answer specific questions about clinical outcomes. The project will additionally focus on investigating time series analysis methods and comparing these head-to-head with processed data methods for performance evaluation. The outcome of this project will be to have a set of resources for a variety of currently under-explored methods for time series analysis, and to have a more comprehensive understanding of how time series data from wearable devices differs from summary parameters, and what types of clinical questions can or should be addressed with each method.

This intern project will be highly collaborative between Early Clinical Development & Experimental Sciences (ECD&ES)/Precision Medicine and Clinical Outcomes Assessment/Patient Innovation and will contribute significantly to the continual development and improvement of Regeneron's scientific capacity to process wearable sensor data, an increasing feature of clinical trial innovation.
Desired Majors:

Computer science, electrical engineering, physics, mathematics, chemistry, biological sciences (any quantitative sciences).
Necessary Technical Skills:

Experience with areas such as digital signal processing, detection, synchronization, channel coding/decoding, parameter estimation & tracking, and machine learning. Proficiency with modeling in Python, R, or MATLAB. Strong attention to detail and curiosity of how digital technologies work. Teamwork: the candidate must be able to communicate well with cross-functional team members, be able to efficiently collaborate with others to achieve project goals on short timelines, and contribute positively to the Global Development community. Strong writing and communication ability (for presentations and publications).
Desired Degree level: Bachelor / Master / PhD
