Associate Medical Director (Asthma & Respiratory Disease expert) : London, Switzerland
This is an exciting opportunity for an Associate Medical Director to join our Viral Challenge Model (VCM) Medical team within Retroscreen, based in Whitechapel, London E1. As an Associate Medical Director you will support the Medical Director in providing leadership and direction to medical and clinical staff during the conduct of a clinical study.
This will suit a candidate with excellent medical skills gained within a clinical research setting, with the ability to lead, upskill and act as part of a team.
All of the clinical development work performed at Retroscreen is based on the Viral Challenge Model, where healthy volunteers are infected by a virus under strict, controlled quarantine conditions. The Viral Challenge Model enables fundamental research into the human response to infection, the modes of infection and the transmission between individuals in the community. This provides a vehicle for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to determine both the safety and efficacy of their new antiviral drugs and/or vaccine candidates, usually to proof of concept.
Required Skills and Experience:
•Proven experience in working with Clinical Trial studies (ideally Phase I and/or II)
•Previous experience of acting as the ‘Medical Expert’ in terms of input and decisions at all stages of the project lifecycle, including oversight of clinical and medical aspects of the study.
•Experience in respiratory and asthma clinical trials.
•Significant experience of having input to Ethics Submissions and meetings with external bodies (i.e. Ethics, MHRA, etc.)
•Have a strong understanding of virology and the medical implications as it relates to conducting studies.
