Who we are
Transforming AstraZeneca into a data-driven enterprise
At AstraZeneca, Data Science has the potential to transform the way we discover and develop new medicines – turning science fiction into life-changing solutions.
We’re already having incredible success. We have a quantity and complexity of data that’s been built up over more than 20 years. It has the potential to answer some of the biggest scientific questions out there.
Our team has a great depth of specialist skills in mathematics, computation and their domain areas, such as pharmacology. And we have strong communities managing our different data sets – for instance, a team entirely dedicated to clinical trial data.
This drives our strong relationships with hospitals and academic institutions, as well as very high ethical standards around the use of patient data. That’s because we know our impact is nothing less than helping to save lives. It’s what drives us to work here as Data Scientists and AI specialists.
