This exclusive (i.e. our firm is the only firm working on this) and highly prioritized MD role will have full ownership of multiple Respiratory programs with the opportunity to gain valuable Clinical and Regulatory filing experience (i.e. IND, NDA, etc.). This critical role will have ownership of multiple projects in the Respiratory portfolio across all phases of development (I-IV) with the chance to work on multiple upcoming IND/NDA filings/submissions, as they have 2 planned upcoming (2017 & 2018) in the Respiratory division alone.
