Who we are
Pharma Partnering, Genentech Business Development, Summer Associate
Pharma Partnering is a diverse group of professionals that apply scientific, financial and negotiating expertise to establish collaborations that facilitate development and commercialization of therapies to bring important new medicines to patients. Genentech's Business Development group continually strives to identify and evaluate novel opportunities that result in strategic alliances with partners. A Business Development Summer Associate may work with multiple external stakeholders and departments in the company, such as Research, Medical Affairs, Market Development, Finance, Marketing, Product Development, Regulatory, and Process Development, to source and evaluate new therapeutic opportunities and to assess the technical merit, potential market size, competitive outlook and strategic fit of licensing opportunities relative to Genentech’s existing portfolio.
Pharma Partnering supports Genentech’s strategic interests in our areas of focus (Oncology, Immunology, Infectious Diseases, Ophthalmology and Neurology) but also actively evaluates emerging/disruptive scientific areas, platforms and enabling technologies that help Genentech deliver on its mission to pursue groundbreaking science to discover and develop medicines for people with serious and life-threatening diseases.
Sample recent project work has included conducting a landscape in areas of high partnering interest (e.g. regenerative medicine/neuroimmunology/other scientific areas), supporting ongoing deal discussions, and developing a strategy for VC engagement.
