Technology is a key part of Roche’s DNA
These are unprecedented times for the IT professionals to help shape Roche’s digital future, as innovation plays a critical role in the healthcare and biotech sector.more
Hi, my name is Cecilia and I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree of Pharmacy (Honours) from the National University of Singapore. Prior to joining Roche, I worked as a clinical pharmacist where I spent most of my time in anticoagulation and heart failure clinics. I find great fulfilment in helping patients and empowering them to make important clinical decisions. Medication safety is my key interest, and I believe safety information helps patients and healthcare professionals make the most informed medical decisions for the best treatment outcomes.
I work in the Singapore regional PV Hub as a pharmacovigilance (PV) specialist. My job requires me to partner with countries in the Asia-Pacific region to create a new, sustainable, agile and efficient implementation of excellence. Working in a regional role has broadened my PV experience through exposure to different countries’ regulations.
I usually start my day with a cup of tea, and my daily work involves the collection and review of safety information. This information needs to be considered from all sources in order to accumulate real-time data to generate meaningful trends. With good quality data, we enable better decision-making throughout the product lifecycle, and transform data into meaningful, predictive and actionable insights.
The only impossible journey is the one you never begin
By upholding excellence in PV compliance, we imbue our regulatory stakeholders with the confidence that Roche has the commitment and aptitude to do what is best for patients. This will in turn expedite patient access to our medications. My work ensures that patients continue to receive access to life-changing therapies.
The place to Work
Roche is very people-centric and strongly believes that people are the main ingredients for success. It is especially inspiring to see how the company is making sure to take care of its employees during the difficulties of COVID-19, and how employees in turn are undeterred to achieve great things for patients. You can be sure of a supportive environment to further your career ambitions!
I work in Singapore but am part of a global team that includes other Hubs in Dubai, Russia, Costa Rica, South Africa and Budapest. The opportunity to work in my home country and yet network with colleagues globally is a unique experience for me.
