Bring drugs to market’, stakeholder management’ and ‘strategic input

are probably some of the phrases the internet bible, that is google, flagged up during your search of what a RA professional does. How does that translate into what the daily activities of a RA professional are, I hear you cry? Well sit back, relax and make yourself comfy for at least the next few minutes, as I will attempt to give you an idea of what you are signing up for when you submit your application before the 8th Feb.

Before I continue I have a little confession to make, whilst I am a RA graduate my first rotation is actually within Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control (CMC) Supply. One of the many beauties of the graduate program is the rotational element; one of your 8 month rotations will be outside of RA, but in a department closely aligned to RA, which leads me nicely into my next paragraph…

CMC Supply

CMC supply is a pretty awesome place to work because:

A) One day you may go into work to see an ice cream machine in the coffee room, which signals you to start salivating like one of Pavlov’s dogs

B) Following the arrival of said ice cream machine, your department manager may tell you to ‘help yourself to as much ice-cream as you want’ (adios waistline)

C) CMC Supply is the heart of the formulation and development of our drug products. In a nutshell, we are the middle men and women between our research laboratories discovering a novel drug product that can kick the ass of diabetes (and other other chronic disorders), and our colleagues in product supply, who manufacture the drug on a commercial scale to then ship to patients across the globe.

This was no mirage, there was an ice-cream machine in my office!

Now I should really get on with telling you a little about what I actually do:

’Bring drugs to market’

Think less breaking bad and more Phase 3 drug development, with the latter being a pivotal stage in the ‘bring drugs to market’ concept. In Phase 3 you compile and submit all your documents to health authorities as part of a new drug application (NDA). The NDA essentially proves that you have the coolest drug product out there, bar none. Recently, I authored one of the first documents from our department to be submitted to the FDA as part of the NDA. Thus highlighting that you get real responsibility from the get go and a real chance to apply yourself. However, it must be noted that such a task could not be completed alone and I was able to get by with a little help from my friends -not Paul McCartney and Co, but my stakeholders.

‘Stakeholder management’

Whether I am relying on a chemist in my department to review a protocol  I am writing, to ensure it is scientifically viable or a colleague in analytical support to give me input on validated methods used to test the stability of our drug product; stakeholders and their input is key to your day-to-day work. Don’t be surprised if you can sometimes spend the best part of a day in meetings with your stakeholders or find yourself negotiating deadlines for their input. I am quickly learning that if you manage your stakeholders well, you have won half of the battle in finalising a task you are responsible for.

‘Strategic input’

Recently I tried my hand at being strategic during the writing of a protocol for a study that confirms our drug product is degraded in light and hence must be stored away from light. Sounds simple right? Well not so simple, as we need to decide on what stability indicating test parameters we want to investigate. To cut a long story short, I made a suggestion of not including some test parameters in the submission package as part of that NDA application I told you about earlier, but still testing said parameters and keeping them in house in case FDA has questions around them. Apparently, this is a good suggestion and considering up until now, the most strategic thing I had done involved me placing hotels on the orange property set of the monopoly board and bankrupting my whole family in the process (sorry guys), I think it is safe to say I am learning and reaching new strategic heights.

It’s like looking in the mirror.

For me to be able to help in the process of bringing drugs to market, whilst managing various stakeholders and trying to give some strategic input from time to time I have been trained and continue to receive ample training to aid my development. Training will be the theme of my 4th blog post, so stay tuned folks :)
