Number of years in Lundbeck: 3.5
Senior Specialist, Biometric Science
I work on linking medical and biological knowledge with different types data and analytical methods to improve our understanding of the brain. But brain diseases are incredibly complex, so this is often akin to doing a huge puzzle with lots of missing pieces – and some pieces may even lack shape or color. When we collaborate across departments, we can sometimes gather enough puzzle pieces to get an idea of what the big picture looks like. These are the most satisfying moments of my job.
In my time at Lundbeck, I have had the opportunity to work in different departments which has given different perspectives on the drug-development process. Starting as a biostatistician, I got hand-on experience about designing and conducting clinical studies. Before moving to my current role, I worked as a data scientist in bioinformatics which taught me about the genetics of brain disease and how omics data can be used in drug discovery and in clinical studies.
The best thing about working for Lundbeck is that I get to work on highly complex problems with amazingly talented coworkers – and you persist despite setbacks because you know that your work will eventually lead to better lives of patients living with brain disease.
Lundbeck has a small-company culture despite being quite a big company. The atmosphere is informal and trustful, and you’ll quickly get to know colleagues across the entire organization.
