Regulatory Sciences - Advertising and Promotion (AP) is one of the functional groups within the Regulatory Sciences organization that support Biogen’s development and commercial programs. The Regulatory Sciences - AP team is responsible for providing Biogen with strategic, high-quality, timely, and decisive regulatory advice on advertising and promotional materials, communications, and company activities in accordance with FDA regulations, company policies, and business goals. The AP group leads communications with regulatory agencies related to US advertising and promotion. This 2-year fellowship is designed to provide advanced hands-on experience. The fellowship develops professionals with comprehensive knowledge of advertising regulations and real-world applications for promotional material from the biopharmaceutical perspective.
Regulatory Sciences - AP is an area in which skills cannot be obtained solely from a professional degree; instead, the necessary knowledge is gained predominantly through on-the-job training and hands-on experience. Biogen recognizes this critical need for experienced Regulatory Sciences - AP professionals and has partnered with the marketing department to offer a fellowship with opportunities to experience and learn the following:
The FDA regulations that govern advertising and promotion
How to accurately and effectively apply regulations and provide guidance
How promotional materials are developed through the commercial organization
The overall goal of the program is to prepare each fellow to be a successful AP professional with a solid understanding of how FDA regulations are followed by the biopharmaceutical industry and enforced by the FDA. Upon completion of the fellowship, the experienced fellow will be well-prepared to enter into an advanced career in Regulatory Sciences - AP.

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.
