BIOMARIN

Location: United States, Remote

Head of Global Patient Advocacy & Engagement

Overview:

BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

BioMarin’s Product Portfolio Development (PPD) group is responsible for BioMarin’s corporate and R&D governance, business operating model (core teams and sub-teams) and portfolio strategy. PPD integrates overall product strategy and ensures planning and timely execution to inform decision making and development of therapies and life cycle strategies at BioMarin.

The importance of patient engagement and patient centricity is increasingly being recognized by the healthcare industry. As BioMarin evolves and enters more competitive and contested spaces there is a recognized need for patient engagement to become more systematic coordinated and strategic in its approach. Global Patient Advocacy and Engagement (GPAE) is a strategic function within BioMarin PPD that leads this effort, by integrating patient perspectives and insights into decision making across the product lifecycle. Specifically, the BioMarin  patient advocacy and engagement group works with patients, caregivers, and disease-specific non-profit patient advocacy groups throughout the life cycle to advance important therapies for unmet medical needs.
