At AstraZeneca, we fuse science and data to develop bold solutions

A place where data drives bold decisions

Across the Research & Development (R&D) pipeline, our understanding of clinical data influences decisions on how we fast-forward the pace of our science, to bring life-changing medicines to patients around the world. Helping us achieve the next wave of breakthroughs and do things that have never been done before.

We harness data and use the best technology solutions to positively impact science. We don’t accept the status quo, digging deep to see what the data is telling us, using cutting-edge methodologies and models to drive scientific breakthroughs.

Biometrics provides the insights to inform and accelerate clinical development across AstraZeneca’s main therapeutic areas: Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism; Oncology; Respiratory & Immunology; Infection and Vaccines; and Neuroscience.

Put simply, we take data seriously. It plays an integral role in R&D, as we push boundaries in science and for patients.

Biometrics – Early and Late Phase Clinical Development

Here at AstraZeneca, across Biometrics we use our expertise in statistics, programming and clinical data to answer drug development objectives and reduce uncertainty in product development, driving better business decisions with quantitative reasoning.

Our diverse (therapy area aligned) teams of dedicated data experts work collaboratively across early and late phase clinical development, of both small molecules and biologics. This allows us to leverage and fuse our own skills with others to maximise impact. We are always expanding our knowledge to get a broad perspective of our portfolio, to consistently deliver optimised programme design, quality information, analysis and interpretation.

What we do

The Biometrics teams are accountable for:

  • Driving optimised clinical program designs
  • Delivering analyses and insights from studies and programs to inform important healthcare decisions using evidence of the highest quality
  • Planning and performing statistical analyses and interpretation for key business decisions
  • Driving access to information and scientific knowledge management

Where should you start?

Whatever your role, everyone in Biometrics makes a big contribution to our purpose, and our enterprise-wide transformation. Everyone has a unique role to play, brought together through shared goals and a collaborative culture: 

Biostatistics:  You will lead the strategic, statistical thinking and contributions to the clinical development plan, study design and execution, regulatory and commercial strategy, as well as reimbursement assessment of products.

Statistical Programming: You will have the chance to utilise your statistical programming expertise in analysis and reporting of clinical development programs; submission and defence of regulatory filings and the generation of evidence to support product commercialisation and reimbursement.

Information Practice: You will support drug development programs by ensuring the optimal utilisation of information, wherever it resides, to make quick and reliable decisions.

There’s no better place, or time, to join our Biometrics community

To achieve our ambition, we are currently recruiting talented, passionate individuals to join our  teams across the globe to help us accelerate our work and bring our medicines to as many patients as possible.
