Manager, Medical Communications Location San Rafael, California Apply

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 Research & Development group is responsible for everything from research and discovery to post-market clinical development. Research & Development involves all bench and clinical research and the associated groups that support those endeavors. Our teams work on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with rare diseases. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients' lives.

Global Medical Affairs (GMAF) is an expert scientific and medical function within BioMarin's R&D organization that develops and maintains non-promotional, evidence-based, transparent and balanced scientific and educational programs and resources in support of BioMarin's products and disease states of interest. We do this by assuring safe and appropriate product use, support of continuous scientific exchange and through ongoing and new data generation.

The Medical Communications group is responsible for leading the scientific publication efforts across GMAF. These publications are a critical element in the dissemination of scientific and clinical data to healthcare providers, enabling them to provide the best possible care to their patients. Medical Communications facilitates the development of the publication strategies and plans based on cross functional efforts to understand and analyze scientific knowledge gaps and create scientific messaging platforms. Once the publication plan is established, Medical Communications conducts in-depth statistical analysis of supporting data, performs systematic literature analysis and manages a team medical writers and graphic designer to deliver best-in-class abstracts, posters, oral presentations and manuscripts.


The Manager role provides management and oversight of publication processes, best practices and the publication development and management software, including training and support to GMAF team members.
