Quantitative Pharmacology & Pharmacometrics (QP2)

Quantitative Pharmacology
​​​​​​​& Pharmacometrics (QP2)

Who we are

We translate breakthrough biomedical research into meaningful new therapies and vaccines that help improve and extend the lives of people worldwide. Through strengths in model-informed drug discovery/development, pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, clinical pharmacology, biopharmaceutics, and regulatory acumen we aim to advance high-quality, differentiated programs in the most streamlined path to registration in collaboration with our partners.

Worldwide operations

The department is made up of over 50 quantitative scientists with the majority distributed between West Point, PA and Rahway, NJ. Co-location with our key discovery and development partners enables us to deliver on our mission while flexible work arrangements enable our group to balance work and life.

Our organization

The department has groups aligned to therapeutic areas (TAs) that create deeper understanding in TA biology, relevant clinical endpoints, patient populations, and the competitive landscape. This allows us to optimally tailor our quantitative contributions to drive impact. In addition, a dedicated pharmacometrics group harbors deep modeling and simulation expertise and focuses on applying state-of-the-art quantitative approaches.

What we do

QP2 aims to deliver significant value through optimizing dosage, identifying opportunities to halt development of undifferentiated assets, and streamlining the development of promising compounds and biologics, all of which contribute to life-changing therapies for patients. Our core strength has been in the areas of dose selection and characterization of pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) properties, while we continue to grow our strategy in areas such as informing the feasibility of targets in discovery, growing the impact of modeling in vaccine development, and investing in advanced data science capabilities to enable the use of digital and real-world data.
