GOAL

The symposium will explore new and existing imaging technologies helping guide surgeries, drive interventional procedures, and optimize personalized therapeutics. Faculty, post-docs, and students at all levels at UW will join with researchers from industry and selected clinicians to discuss current trends in the field, learn about each other’s research expertise, and promote potential research collaborations, development/translation projects, student projects, internships, and targeted recruiting.

BACKGROUND

With the advent of image-guided procedures and robust molecular imaging tools, biomedical imaging has moved beyond conventional diagnosis to include procedure guidance and personalized treatment delivery. Image guidance has revolutionized surgical oncology, especially in the brain. Similarly, imaged-guided procedures have revolutionized interventional oncology and new procedures are expanding into nearly area of tumor management. At the molecular level, new targeted probes for all modern imaging modalities have been developed over the last decade not only for specific diagnosis, but also to help monitor the effectiveness of targeted molecular/cellular therapies for cancer. Overall, imaging is now an essential tool for both diagnosis and treatment in oncology. The UW-BioE sponsored symposium will explore the latest trends in this expanding field and address what is still needed to provide imaging tools that can translate our knowledge of the molecular basis of disease into procedures delivering on the promise of precision cancer treatment.

FORMAT

This will be a day-long event and will consist mainly of short talks and panel discussions by attendees on current and emerging imaging tools focused on precision medicine in oncology and on the barriers to clinical acceptance of these tools. There will also be plenty of time for discussion during break times and at the reception following the formal sessions. At all break sessions, UW students will have posters describing their work.

For more information and to register, please visit the BioEngage Symposium website.

Deadline: Open until filled

The Modeling and Simulation group at Takeda Pharmaceuticals in Cambridge, MA is looking for interns to work remotely on mathematical modeling projects.  The projects are done in a collaborative setting with the aim of providing practical insight and solutions to problems arising in the pharmaceutical setting.

Who we are

We are a fast-moving group whose mission is to support rational quantitative decision-making in drug discovery and development through the applications of mathematical modeling and optimization techniques.  We take a forward-thinking approach and build novel capabilities through focused research projects applying mathematical modeling to drug development in new ways.

What you will do

As a co-op student you will get to work with various modeling scientists on our team, while working on real projects that will help us grow.  Project subject matter will span a wide range of domains, ranging from drug discovery and development, to cancer biology, to decision science

Projects will involve modeling and simulation to investigate and translate the results and are scaled in size to take approximately 120 hours to complete.   Interns initially commit to 10 hours per week for a 3 month commitment .  All work is theoretical or computational, and does not require any wet-lab components.

While much of your work will be on projects that are directly required for drug development to proceed and are therefore confidential, there will be opportunities to develop publication-oriented research projects as well.  This opportunity will show you what life – and assignments- in industry research look like, and will provide both the experience and the perspective to improve the odds of landing a competitive industry position.

What you will learn

  • How mathematical modeling is applied to drug discovery and development.
  • How to work in a high-functioning, tightly-knit team of creative, energetic scientists.

Who you are

  • A current graduate, undergraduate, or post-doc with an applied mathematics background and a desire to pursue an industry career
  • Experience with mathematical modeling, differential equations, and statistics
  • Proficiency with MATLAB, R, Python, C, C++ or similar
  • Comfortable with reading and analyzing scientific literature
  • Experience with publications is a plus
  • Organized, with an ability to prioritize time-sensitive assignments
  • Motivation and creativity to solve problems in the pharmaceutical setting

Details

  • This is a remote position; work from home or school.
  • $17/hr (10 hours per week for approximately 12 weeks, extendable based on performance. Schedule is somewhat negotiable. You can expect pay raises based on performance.)

About Takeda

Takeda is a rapidly growing and energetic corporation that attracts and retains well-qualified personnel from all over the world. We strive to maximize the capabilities of our diverse workforce while pursuing our mission to provide quality pharmaceuticals to people worldwide. The corporate climate at Takeda fosters collaboration across the globe, and our growth potential is appealing to ambitious individuals.
