The Real World Evidence (RWE) Center of Excellence (CoE) is a rapidly expanding group that provides integrated, end-to-end RWE optimization, education, communication, and maximization of data partnerships’ value within therapeutic areas (TAs) to meet both core and innovative Development, Regulatory and Commercial needs to support breakthroughs to change patients’ lives.

The Inflammation & Immunology (I&I) TA is responsible for transforming chronic inflammatory diseases to deliver therapies that replace existing treatments that provide only symptom relief. Cross-functional pipeline and asset teams create and deliver biologics, small molecule inhibitors for multiple medical dermatologic conditions, gastroenterology conditions including ulcerative colitis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and investigational therapies for rheumatologic diseases including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.

Within the Global RWE CoE, a dedicated team of RWE Scientists reporting to the I&I RWE Lead will support the TA and other special projects. Leveraging their understanding of how RWE can support the entire lifecycle, the I&I RWE Scientist Manager will deliver timely real world insights (RWI) and RWE in collaboration with cross-functional teams, provide guidance on appropriate sources of real world data and methods, and will create easy-to-understand summary reports. Where external data sources or services are required, they will help oversee / consult for any external RWE studies. For both approaches, the I&I RWE Scientist Manager will ensure the development and application of consistent business rules and standards, versioning rules as care pathways evolve.

The I&I RWE Scientist Manager will play a key role in delivering RWE projects and support the development of I&I RWE strategy in alignment with TA needs.
