Biomarin (company)

Posted on : 15 April 2017

Project Description

BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

BioMarin Development Sciences collects biospecimens (human) during the execution of clinical trials through the various phases of drug development.  The ability to track and manage biospecimens from collection to final disposition with essential information such as informed consent and biospecimen collection compliance is crucial for BioMarin.  The Clinical Biospecimen Management group provides this support to the broader organization by ensuring that biospecimen-related activities are efficient, effective, and well-documents. 

The Analyst will focus on supporting the group in a planner role with responsibility for a limited number of studies and acting under the guidance of more experienced CBM staff.  Responsibility areas include serving as a point of contact for study team requests and escalating where appropriate, providing biospecimen-related input to stakeholder groups within BioMarin and maintaining the Biospecimen Management Plan (BMP).
