Job Description

About the role:

At Takeda, we are committed to lifelong learning.

To that end, Takeda's summer internship program blends real world experience with an extensive overview of the pharmaceutical industry. Knowledgeable mentors will provide guidance as you gain professional hands-on experience to start your career or further develop in your expertise.

The summer internship program is a full-time commitment of 12 weeks in length and offers a unique perspective into a world-class pharmaceutical company. Our internship program also provides you the opportunity to network with people at Takeda through various planned events and activities.

Project Outline:

The summer intern will work on development of a quantitative systems toxicology modeling framework for the drug-induced neurodegeneration. The modeling framework aims to mechanistically delineate the multilayer relationship of drug exposure, safety biomarker(s) and severity of toxicology score(s) of the neurodegeneration. The intern will explore the relationship of safety biomarker(s) between peripheral blood and the cerebrospinal fluid with applying the physiologically based kinetic concept. The developed model will be applied to available data sets in animal species, patients, and in vitro systems. The model analyses across species/systems will help us to better understand the translational scalability of the safety biomarkers/endpoints, which enable us to better predict possible safety risks of a new drug candidate in humans from preclinical species/systems. The developed model will serve as a quantitative means to balance the therapeutic benefits and safety risks of a new drug candidate in forward and reverse translational manners, which will accelerate the discovery and development of new drug candidates for patients.

The intern will work under hybrid model.

How you will contribute:

* Deadline-driven with a high level of organizational and planning skills


* Strong analytical, problem-solving, and oral and written communication skills


* Ability to work well in teams, effectively manage projects, and present ideas clearly and concisely.


* Global mindset to grow in a diverse work environment


* Excellent communication and leadership skills


* Skills and knowledge of mathematical modeling of biological systems
