Associate Research Scientist II

Work with senior staff in the Clinical Pharmacology Department, Bioanalysis and Validation Group to:
• Accurately perform Assays using ELISA, Mesoscale (MSD), Electrochemiluminescent bead-based immunoassay (ECLIA) and BioVeris.

• Support Data Analysis by clearly and precisely reporting data and observations from testing in a GLP laboratory into SoftMax, and CyberLab. From CyberLab,data will be imported to Watson LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System)for nterpretation. This function also includes being in charge of the laboratory notebooks, study binders, and sample tracking binders.

• Perform Bioanalytical Quality Summary (BQS) to validate the bioanalytical data from Clinical and Non Clinical studies.

• Train team members on various assays for clinical studies.

? Perform the daily and monthly maintenance on plate washers, BioVeris instruments, to support the analysis of clinical and non-clinical trials

Other Responsibilities:
• Performed Assays using Electrochemiluminescent bead-based immunoassay (ECLIA) using BioVeris and Mesoscale (MSD) to Completed the Biologics License Application (BLA), filed with the FDA for CNTO1275 – Ustelinumab for Psoriasis and CNTO 148 for asthma. Also supported the documentation to successfully complete the BLA. The BLA process started in 2007 and ended in mid 2008.

• One of the 4 individuals designated by the group to complete the Bioequivalence of the CNTO 148 – C0524T24 to conduct a comparison study between CNTO 148 drug for asthma, administered by auto injection and through subcutaneous. Completed BE study on time, went through an internal audit during process and had good feedbacks
