Pipeline Medical Science Liaison focuses on interacting with, and supporting the needs of, investigators participating in our enterprise critical (EC) studies in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This field-based role communicates information and facilitates scientific dialogue about AbbVie's investigational products, and compounds in development, in a strictly scientific, non-promotional manner, and in full compliance with applicable national laws and regulations, guidelines, codes of conduct, AbbVie's policies and procedures and accepted standards of best practice.

Pipeline MSL serves to enhance the scientific credibility of the Company with established and emerging clinical investigators as well as key scientific institutions and collaborative study groups, by supporting scientific dialogue and collaborations in the areas of research, medical and scientific exchange, including facilitation of requests for scientific and medical information. MSLs also participate in close partnership with affiliate-based Clinical Site Monitoring (CSM) staff in the initiation, oversight, and follow-up of clinical studies. They also interface with other key members of the affiliate medical department and key external stakeholders.

In addition, the responsibilities will cover also:
    • Ensure a strong medical and scientific presence for AbbVie in investigational sites and key scientific centers by facilitation of clinical research and of interventional phase 1-3 trials with AbbVie drugs, while supporting requests for medical and scientific information on products or areas of therapeutic interest to AbbVie

    • Deliver credible presentations on scientific matters in the disease area of responsibility and about AbbVie's pipeline to investigators in AbbVie-sponsored interventional research.
    • Participate in the selection process to identify appropriately qualified external experts the Company would wish to engage in collaborative efforts - such as potential research collaborations, or educational and advisory roles (Advisory Boards, Congresses, Symposia, etc.); while ensuring a high level of scientific or educational integrity in these collaborative efforts.
    • Identify opportunities for R&D collaborations with key institutions and thought leaders and liaise with the Search& Evaluation team and Discovery or Clinical Development teams to facilitate further assessment.
    • Facilitate medical and scientific field intelligence - for example, maintain a list of investigators/potential investigators within a given TA, understand competitive research activities in active or planned study sites, generate insights from investigators on challenges and opportunities for AbbVie-sponsored clinical trials - and communicate, where appropriate, within the Company.
    • Attend relevant scientific meetings and Conferences.
