The Associate Director/Director position is responsible for contributing to clinical science activities and providing medical support to clinical operations. The position will help to generate clinical development plans and provide medical and scientific input for Celldex sponsored and investigator initiated protocols. As a medical monitor, the position will oversee study patient safety, play key roles in data collection, data cleaning, and data analysis, train internal and study site staffs on study procedures, and address study related medical and protocol issues. There are potential additional opportunities in managing collaborations with partners and in regulatory communications.
Wouldn't read too much into it. In clinical research, "partners" can mean collaborative study groups like ECOG, SWOG and the like or clinical departments of manufacturers of combination or comparator drugs in investigator initiated trials. I read this as potential job enrichment for the usual medical monitor work described above in the ad.
