Do you want to work with drug safety in clinical development?
As Senior Safety Advisor you will be a key player in the safety surveillance and development of one of LEO Pharma’s new biologics for the treatment of atopic dermatitis. You will become part of a team of 6 Safety Advisors working with an investigational, fully human monoclonal antibody for the treatment of moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. The product specifically blocks the effects of the cytokine IL-13, which plays an important role in the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis – one of the most common chronic, inflammatory skin diseases.
