Genentech Fellowship | Clinical Pharmacology

Genentech Logo The joint UOP-Genentech Clinical Pharmacology Fellowship program builds on the synergy between the fellow's broad Doctor of Pharmacy training and Genentech's innovation in drug development to prepare the individual for a career in the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry. The fellow will be part of the gRED Clinical Pharmacology Department, which is responsible for applying the principles of quantitative pharmacology to enable selection of a safe and effective dose, route and regimen for small molecules and biologics. The fellow will gain drug development experience at Genentech by completing research projects in clinical pharmacology and/or modeling and simulation and collaborating with scientists across disciplines. These experiences will potentially lead to publications and presentations at scientific conferences and give the fellow exposure to career opportunities in the biotechnology/pharmaceutical industry.
