With patients at the heart of everything we do, The Lung Cancer Initiative (LCI) at Johnson & Johnson was formed in 2018 to unleash the full potential of lung cancer science to help change the trajectory of this complex disease.
As an R&D engine, the LCI takes a multidisciplinary approach in bringing together the unparalleled expertise, technology, scale, and reach across Johnson & Johnson within its Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, and Consumer Health sectors, and works with collaborators worldwide to advance innovations that aim to create more effective and personalized treatments for lung cancer and other selected solid tumors with the goal to improve patient outcomes.
This position is responsible to lead all the early development oncology pharmaceutical clinical projects, as well provide oncology development experience to the in clinic medical device portfolio used in the treatment of cancer. Specifically, this individual will be responsible for the development and execution of the clinical portion of the LCI pharmaceutical strategy, which is focused on intratumoral therapy designed to treat lung cancer and selected other tumor types across the continuum of disease with a goal of treating earlier forms of the disease and a long-term goal of preventing lung cancer. In addition, the incumbent would provide oncology clinical expertise to the medical device sector in the design & conduct of clinical trials in support of both robotic and non-robotic devices used in the care of solid tumors.
This position is responsible for the design and execution of the early phase clinical trials from first in human to proof of concept and beyond. This will include responsibility for the overall development strategy as well as individual trial design working closely with the discovery and biomarker teams. Key elements of success for this effort will include developing both a short term and long term clinical strategies that acknowledges the existing capabilities and resources that exist within the Johnson & Johnson family of companies, while laying out a vision that is integrated with the overall Lung Cancer Initiative and New Venture strategy. On the medical device side, this position will provide critical oncology drug development experience on areas of endpoints, trial design and conduct to meet evolving regulatory standards for novel medical devices used in the treatment of solid tumors, in particular lung cancer.
