Affiliate Medical Science Liaison Pipeline (Hematology/Oncology) – Germany

Pipeline Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) are key members of the affiliate medical department. These field-based roles focus on interacting with, and supporting the needs of, investigators participating in prioritised sponsored studies. Pipeline MSLs work to communicate information and facilitate dialogue about AbbVie’s investigational products, and compounds in development, in a strictly scientific, non-promotional manner, and in full compliance with applicable national laws and regulations, guidelines, codes of conduct, AbbVie’s policies and procedures and accepted standards of best practice. Pipeline MSLs serve to enhance the scientific credibility of the Company with established and emerging clinical investigators as well as key scientific institutions and collaborative study groups, by supporting scientific dialogue and collaborations in the areas of research, medical and scientific exchange, including facilitation of requests for scientific and medical information. MSLs also participate in close partnership with affiliate-based clinical study management staff in the initiation, oversight, and follow-up of clinical studies. They also interface with other key members of the affiliate medical department – for example: Medical Managers, Medical Advisors, Clinical Research Managers and functions such as Health Economics and Outcomes Research, Market Access and others as appropriate and work collaboratively and cross-functionally with other in-field members while retaining functional independence.
