Job Description:

By clicking the -Apply- button, I understand that my employment application process with Takeda will commence and that the information I provide in my application will be processed in line with Takeda's and . I further attest that all information I submit in my employment application is true to the best of my knowledge.Job DescriptionAs a Clinical and Quantitative Pharmacology lead in Cell Therapies, you will support the development of these novel therapeutic modalities from early phase to late phase and regulatory submission. Develop clinical pharmacology strategies, execute clinical pharmacology studies, and perform dose-exposure-response analyses within the context of multi-scale, physiologic systems in the cell therapy context. Lead the implementation of model based analysis and be responsible for supporting dose and regimen recommendations, identification of patient and product related factors that impact efficacy and safety, and other clinical and regulatory support for Takeda's cell therapy programs. This individual demonstrates significant knowledge of -translation and clinical pharmacology, pharmacometrics based modeling to establish quantitative relationship between cellular kinetics & response (safety, efficacy, biomarker), address product development questions and contribute to clinical pharmacology package. The position's objectives also include comprehensive understanding and interpretation of preclinical packages, protocol development, data interpretation, study report completion, and communication of results with recommendations on future development decisions.This position will be part of Cell Therapy Clinical Pharmacology, Modeling & Bioinformatics group within Precision & Translational Medicine as part of Oncology Therapeutic Area Unit. All efforts will be directed toward progression of cell therapies into and through clinical development with the ultimate objective of global regulatory approval.-----------------------------------ACCOUNTABILITIES:-

  • This role will be expected to be the primary point of accountability at the asset level for assigned programs and will provide scientific, and quantitative input as the Clinical/Quantitative Pharmacology Lead on the Global Program Teams, and associated scientific and operational sub-teams.
  • Leads dose justification, reinfusion strategy, CK/PD based assessments, immunogenicity by integrating cellular kinetics, pharmacodynamics, product and patient characteristics throughout clinical development in close collaboration with key functions.
  • Responsible for the design and implementation of the quantitative Pharmacology plans using traditional and model informed drug development approaches and will manage the clinical study process from protocol development to final study reporting.
  • Responsible for the leading, planning or execution of relevant quantitative analyses which may include population pharmacokinetics, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, exposure response, disease progression modeling, model-based meta analysis, and decision analysis supporting cell therapy projects.
  • Closely collaborate with functional leads from clinical, translational, stats, discovery, manufacturing and regulatory to ensure modeling is performed to address critical clinical questions in a timely and efficient manner.
  • During the pre-clinical stages of product development works with research teams to ensure quantitative mechanistic understanding and preclinical PK-PD knowledge to justify human dose and route of- administration.
