Who we are

At Roche, we believe it’s urgent to deliver medical solutions right now – even as we develop innovations for the future. We are passionate about transforming patients’ lives and we are fearless in both making decisions and taking action. And we believe that good business means a better world.

That is why we come to work each day. We commit ourselves to scientific rigor, unassailable ethics, and access to medical innovations for all. We do this today to build a better tomorrow.

We are proud of who we are, what we do, and how we do it. We are many, working as one across functions, across companies, and across the world.

In Translational Modeling and Simulation, we are supporting early research and development with mathematical modeling, with the aim to enhance understanding of disease biology and inform the selection of the right molecules for development. We design innovative and quantitative approaches to predict molecules efficacy and safety, by integrating pharmacological and toxicological data from the early stages of development. We develop quantitative predictions to translate preclinical findings to the patients to ensure the optimal conduct of clinical studies.

Your responsibilities during the internship

  • Develop mathematical models from in vivo data with the aim to enable selection of optimal dose for patient benefit
  • Compare predictions to properties of medicine already in the market
  • lead the drafting of scientific publication on the work performed
