At Biogen, our mission is clear – we are pioneers in neuroscience. Biogen discovers, develops, and delivers worldwide innovative therapies for people living with serious neurological and neurodegenerative diseases. Together, our employees create, commercialize, and manufacture transformative therapies for our patient population.
We at Biogen are committed to building on our culture of inclusion and belonging that reflects the communities where we operate and the patients who we serve. We are focused on strengthening our foundation to advance our overall Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) strategy and, most importantly, ensure all our employees feel included.
As an intern or co-op at Biogen, you can expect to be placed on a real project, under the guidance of experienced professionals and subject matter experts who are invested in your career and academic growth. We also ensure that you have plenty of opportunities to build your network, learn more about our organization through weekly lunch and learns led by leaders from across the company, and join us for several fun events.
This application is for a 6-month full-time position from January to June 2022.
Clinical Pharmacology and Pharmacometrics (CPP) provides characterization and prediction of the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and drug metabolism (PPDM) of the drug candidate in selected preclinical and all clinical areas, supporting drug discovery and medical therapeutics across many disease areas. As part of our mission, CPP is developing cutting-edge computational tools and accurate anatomical models as we develop a computational fluid dynamics simulation of the central nervous system.
You will be part of a team doing mechanistic modeling of the central nervous system, including fluid dynamics, solute transport, and tissue biomechanics. You will help with the definition of modeling approaches that can capture the relevant biology under study and, you will run, characterize, and validate these models using experimental data.
