We wantall ofour people to go beyond what is possible. We aren’t constrained by typical end rails, and we aren’t out to just “treat” people. We’re all in this for something more. We’re driven to cure and motivated for change. Just imagine the possibilities of what we can do together.

How you will Achieve More with Intellia:

The Director of Clinical Pharmacology will be responsible for developing, driving, and implementing global Clinical Pharmacology strategies for genome editing therapies.

Reporting to the Head of Clinical Pharmacology, s/he will be a member of the program leadership team providing Clinical Pharmacology perspectives and delivering modeling and analyses necessary to evaluate clinical options, enable plans, and optimize development programs. This includes study design, PK/PD analysis and modeling, and program assessment. The successful candidate will bring experience in clinical pharmacology and work cross-functionally with research and clinical teams to drive programs to success.Responsibilities also include:

  • Under the supervision of the Head of Clinical Pharmacology, develop and drive the Clinical Pharmacology strategies for genome editing therapies
  • Develop and execute modeling and simulation plans; use model-based approaches to improve the efficiency of drug development and support dose selection and optimization
  • Partner with DMPK and translational medicine to ensure relevant clinical pharmacology strategy is developed
  • Ensure appropriate PKPD analyses including population PK, PKPD modeling and simulation, meta-analysis, and disease modeling to aid in dose selection, trial design, and/or clinical program decision-making
  • Oversee clinical biomarker program and execute on program
  • Oversee vendors, as appropriate, for population PK, PK/PD, and exposure-response analyses including document quality compatible with global regulatory submission requirements
