A postdoctoral research opportunity is currently available with the Office of Commissioner (OC), Office of Women's Health (OWH), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The project will be located at the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) in the Division of Pharmacometrics, Office of Clinical Pharmacology, Office of Translational Science, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) located in Silver Spring, Maryland.
We are interested in applying quantitative clinical pharmacology to address specific challenges in drug development and patient care. In this research project, we propose developing data-driven and scientifically-based regulatory recommendations to assess: the appropriate measurement of relative dose intensity and the impact of dosage interruptions/reductions on efficacy of breast cancer drugs. The outcomes from this project are expected to guide rational selection of appropriate dosage modification strategies to enhance treatment adherence and minimize the impact on treatment clinical effects in patients with breast cancer.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will be learning modeling and simulation techniques, and regulatory and clinical knowledge in drug development.
