As a leader in neuroscience, Biogen encourages innovation across all aspects of drug development, including regulatory strategy. Regulatory Sciences at Biogen is continually looked to for new and risk-forward approaches. This spirit of pioneering is the ideal background for a PharmD fellow to challenge themselves and grow as a professional. Fellows in this program will gain valuable handson experience working on programs that span the development lifecycle. By working directly with experienced regulatory professionals, fellows will learn the fundamentals of both US and global regulatory and form the foundation for a successful career in Regulatory Sciences. In addition, fellows may have the opportunity to work on department-wide initiatives that span multiple drug development programs.
Over the course of this two-year fellowship, the fellow will gain experience in three groups within Regulatory Sciences:
United States Regulatory Sciences (USRS)

About MCPHS University/Biogen
Biogen helped create an industry that has touched countless lives. We were among the world's first biotechnology companies, and today we are the oldest independent biotech firm in the world.From the start, when a group of scientists and venture capitalists were united by a new vision for serving unmet medical needs, the company's personality has reflected the multifaceted name of the industry we helped co-found: biotechnology. Biology is about life, about understanding the body's inner workings, about exploring new discoveries and insights to improve lives. Technology is about practical application, about making things work, about developing new products to help people. Biogen embodies both these worldviews. Scientific curiosity and courageous innovation helps us create new and important therapies; practicality makes us successful and vital to our patients. These values extend beyond our laboratories; our aim to discover better ways of doing things infuses all our work, from manufacturing and marketing to partnerships and human resources. At the same time, the practical application of our discoveries is what drives our scientists, as we seek treatments and therapies that can help p...atients live longer and better lives. At Biogen, we are proud of our more than 30 years of contributions to the biotechnology industry and look forward to continuing to shape the future of an industry that transforms scientific discovery into advances in patient care.
