ical metabolism and PK), design and review clinical pharmacology study prot=
ocols and support clinical trials, conduct pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic =
modeling and analyses, and incorporate findings into study report and regul=
atory documents as well as participate directly in regulatory interactions.=
 A strong background in clinical pharmacology and pharmacokinetics combined=
 with excellent leadership and communications skills are essential in this =
dynamic role. Clinical pharmacology experience with both small and large mo=
