As a Roche Postdoctoral Fellow you will contribute to our key efforts towards development and characterization of ocular drug delivery systems. You will be working with scientists within the Ophthalmology research and development group, which is focused on the clinical translation of therapeutic approaches for eye diseases, including age related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma. In this role, you will:

  • Develop and evaluate novel ocular drug delivery technologies within established tissue culture and animal models of ocular diseases to identify strategies with the highest potential for clinical translation
  • Investigate clinically-translatable polymer chemistries, hydrogels, and related drug delivery systems with applicability towards ophthalmology
  • Participate in scientific diligence to evaluate opportunities for external innovation as well as presenting the laboratory’s scientific progress to internal stakeholders as well as the external academic and drug discovery community through presentations and peer-reviewed publications
