you will also provide scientific input to the early stage of research and development. This includes study design, analysis, and interpretation of preclinical data and mechanistic studies in human-based 3D culture systems or animal models.

Collaboration with colleagues within and beyond early R&I will be crucial for you to be successful in your role and you will work closely together with colleagues from Patient Safety, Discovery science, Translational science, and late R&I Groups.

We will rely on you to:
