Required Education
Position Type
Full time

If you are a student pursuing a Masters or PhD degree in Quantitative Science, including Computational Biology, Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Genetics, Biostatistics, or related, you may be a fit for an internship in our Global Development organization.

Tarrytown, NY is where medicines are discovered. Our robust research and development engine allows us to discover therapies that could have a profound impact on patient health and scientific outcomes.

We generate ideas, explore them and challenge them on their way to becoming life-changing medicines.

Our unique ability to repeatedly and consistently translate science into medicine has led to a robust pipeline of clinical-stage medicines, all of which were discovered in our laboratories. Our investigational treatments target allergic and inflammatory diseases, cancer, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, neuromuscular diseases, infectious diseases and rare diseases.

It’s a collegial place where science leads, and you’ll be supplied with what you need to do great work. We’re creative thinkers and rigorous workers. We never lose sight of the fact that the work we do here can change the world.

Project Description

This position is in Early Clinical Development and Experimental Sciences in Tarrytown, New York.

Omics data is a core component of Regeneron’s therapeutic discovery and development pipeline. Although large amounts of pre-clinical and clinical data have been generated by Regeneron and scientific communities, currently these data are still underutilized by integrative analysis approach. Multi-omics human and mouse data, both internal and external to Regeneron, can be leveraged to drive biological insights about disease and treatment, and potentially to inform alternative indications. The intern will help curate disease and treatment transcriptomic signatures, and collaborate with Bioinformatics Core Services team to integrate these signatures with Regeneron internal knowledge and tools (e.g. genetics/transcriptomic/EHR profiles/Intermap). The intern will also help to create dashboards for integration and visualization. 

Specifically, this project involves: 

·  Contextually augmenting disease or treatment gene signatures with respective omics data from existing bioinformatic databases. 

·   Perform multi-omics signature similarity analyses with signatures from same indication or treatment

·   Running analyses for transcriptomic gene lists generated by Regeneron scientists 

This can be potentially helpful to identify alternative‐indication use on current Regeneron drugs, increase the understand of mechanism of actions for current treatment, and provide additional information on new targets going into the clinic.

Necessary Technical Skills

  • Ability to perform quantitative data analysis and visualize results in R, Python or other programming language; Familiarity with API is preferred but optional;
  • Familiarity with omics data, gene expression analysis, pathway analysis, and genetic concepts;
  • Ability to prepare PowerPoint presentation and write‐up results in a reports;
  • Excellent inter‐personal communication and ability to communicate with collaborators from a diverse background.

In this role, a typical summer or semester might include the following:

  • Achieving a general understanding of what happens in our global organization
  • Completing hands-on project work that has an impact on the business
  • Engaging with Regeneron leadership
  • Collaborating with other interns
  • Establishing connections with Regeneron’s diverse employee resource groups
  • Participating in professional development sessions while enjoying lots of free food and swag
  • Showcasing the knowledge you gained through end of program presentation sessions
  • Getting paid for your hard work!

This role might be for you if:

  • You want to make a difference
  • You advocate for your ideas – and what they can do in the world
  • You’re excited to think, challenge, listen, re-think and solve
  • You continuously look for ways to improve
  • You are science-minded, ask questions and challenge conventional wisdom
  • You work with precision, passion, intellect and integrity
  • You’re ready to work with the team that can bring a great idea to life
  • You know this is no ordinary job

To be considered for this opportunity, you must be enrolled in, or accepted to, an academic program pursuing a Graduate or PhD degree (and be returning to school the semester following the internship). A cumulative GPA of 3.0 is preferred. We want someone who is able to commit to 40 hours per week for a minimum of 10 weeks from the end of May/ June through the beginning of August. Demonstrated leadership in areas such as campus activities, clubs, sports, current or previous work, or the community is also preferred.
