The Biosciences in Pharmaceutical Research
Bioscientists are involved in diverse challenging activities throughout the entire drug discovery process:
- unravelling the complex interplay of genes in healthy or diseased organisms,
- elucidation of the specific functions of individual genes and their regulation or modulation under different conditions,
- development of meaningful assays and animal models,
- production of suitable materials for biostructural research,
- assistance in screening efforts to identify promising lead compounds,
- close collaborations with chemists and pharmacologists in the multidimensional optimisation of lead compounds and in the final selection of candidates for clinical studies,
- continuous support of clinical development at all stages.
Roche organizes every year two unique symposiums, one for chemists and one for bioscientists. These symposiums take place at Roche’s Headquarters in Basle, Switzerland and are good opportunities to learn about modern research at Roche. These symposiums concern successful postgraduates chemists/bioscientists with significant achievements during their Ph.D. or postdoctoral work.
