What does our department do?
Our department supports the technical development of new medical tests and their evaluation in submission studies. We strive for providing doctors and patients the best support available for diagnosis and treatment of diseases with an urgent, but yet unmet medical need.
Join us in delivering a valuable contribution to our society, according our motto “Doing now what patients need next”.
How does a typical working day look like for us?
Let's assume the pandemic is over. You start your day with a first coffee or tea and meet your colleagues on the way to the coffee kitchen.
8:00 am – Today, you have your first meeting with Regulatory Affairs and Clinical Operations. The feedback from the authorities on the submission of a study is discussed.
9:00 am – Test development calls you. An assay shows a negative component of variance. You explain the background for this finding. Overall, precision is worse than expected. You evaluate the factors that may be responsible for this, and provide an analysis report.
12:00 noon - Lunch break with colleagues in the cafeteria. The great choice of dishes makes it hard to decide. A coffee with your colleagues helps you start the second half of your day.
1:00 pm - A phone call with a US Study Manager about the design of an upcoming study is in the calendar now. You want her approval for the primary analysis so that you can finalize the sample size calculation for the statistical analysis plan.
2:00 pm - Then you proceed with developing your R package for test development. You add functions and document in parallel the requirements for their validation in the document management system.
4:00 pm - Now you travel by one of our company's bicycles to another building to meet the study team. You present your results of an interim analysis of a study, discuss its impact on the project with the team and assign action items.
5:00 pm - It's time to finish up and see what is planned for tomorrow.
