Digital tools, such as smartphones or wearables, can now continually measure and collect vital health information - or Digital Biomarkers . Digital Biomarkers are changing how future medicines will be developed and could lead to more personalized use of new medications that will transform the lives of patients. Advances in wearable devices, such as phones, watches, textiles or delivery devices, which track a patient's vital signs and monitor for symptoms, all have the potential to vastly accelerate clinical development.

Work with our software developers to turn your algorithms into fully documented and validated high-quality code
Drive the understanding of the data analysis results by clinical development programs through the development of compelling narratives and presentation
Contribute to manuscripts for peer-reviewed journal articles to establish the biological, clinical and patient relevance of data collected in novel digital biomarker approaches
Contribute to the improvement and automation of the data processing and analysis pipeline across programs
