Medical Engagement Lead AT1D

  • Location: Denmark

About the job

At Sanofi, we are driven by one purpose – we chase the miracles of science to improve people’s lives. Our team, across some 100 countries, is dedicated to transforming the practice of medicine by working to turn the impossible into the possible.

We never settle and now we are creating a new paradigm with a first-in-class therapy in Autoimmune Diabetes (Type 1 Diabetes).

Our newest core asset, resulting from the acquisition of Provention Bio in General Medicines Autoimmune Type 1 Diabetes space, aims at delaying the onset of stage 3 type 1 diabetes. This means that for the first time, people at risk of developing this lifelong disease have fresh hope. What delayed onset means is more time for children to be children with less healthcare and more care-free childhood. The delay also gives families and healthcare professionals more time to prepare care plans for a later diagnosis.

We now present an exciting opportunity for you to go further faster. If you’re excited by the prospect of bringing this innovative, first-in-class therapy to more people at risk then we want to hear from you as we build a great team who will work at the intersection of our growth in immune-mediated diseases and disease-modifying therapies in areas of high unmet need.

This is a chance to bring your energy, expertise and experience to truly transformative and career-defining leadership roles where you can help change countless lives. In return, you will have a rare opportunity in pharma – the chance to help disrupt and delay a debilitating and widespread disease.

This really is a ‘prime time’ role offering you huge visibility and the chance to fast-track your career in healthcare.

Innovation, patient focus and disruptive thinking are all key threads of our Play To Win culture.

Our Autoimmune Type 1 Diabetes journey starts now and you can help us chart a new course – not only for Sanofi but for preventive healthcare. Now is the time to add your strengths to ours!
