It is an exciting time to be a part of Team Lilly! Do you have experience working in a GLP environment designing and supervising the conduct of toxicology studies? The Nonclinical Study Management Team (NSMT) is a hardworking and diverse team looking for an experienced Toxicology study monitor with expertise in management of nonclinical safety assessment study conduct, including the fundamentals of Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and data interpretation of nonclinical studies.

To enable toxicology studies, study managers must understand the technical capabilities of individual TPOs and provide scientific input/expertise on whether studies can be performed as described in the protocol, especially those containing novel procedures. Responsibilities include establishment of, and adherence to, non-clinical study timelines, monitoring of study conduct at the TPO via communication with the Study Director and/or onsite observation, and real time communication with the Toxicology ADME/ToxPath/Drug Disposition (ATP) team throughout study planning, execution and reporting.

Study Implementation and Conduct (45%):

  • Manage study achievements and metrics to ensure delivery to corporate milestones.
  • The primary Lilly representative that visits TPOs during the course of the study to ensure technical capabilities are adequate and procedures match the protocol.
  • Interact with TPOs as the first line of contact for any study-related issues. Make the initial determination of the impact of the issue on the integrity of the study.

Report Writing and Review (10%):

  • Integrate and assemble Toxicology information for IND/CTD and IB documents
  • Serve point person within Lilly for the receipt, review and interpretation of study data.
  • Coordinate and monitor the internal review of study data to assure compliance with study timelines.

Additional Skills and Preferences:

  • Experience in animal husbandry
  • Excellent communication skills (written and oral)
  • Attention to detail and ability to multitask

  • Strong teamwork skills with internal and external partners
