J&J job ads emphasize change in focus

Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceutical Research & Development in Titusville, NJ, is looking for a director of integrative neurosciences and biomarkers. It is worth noting some of the language used in the job description: "As the pharmaceutical industry as a whole moves into a more challenging phase, the current model of relying on block-busters designed for the 'average patient' is increasingly under pressure. All stake-holders (payers, patients, physicians) expect more customized solutions and increased value proposition from pharmaceutical products." Whoever gets this job will focus on finding biomarkers for early detection of Alzheimer's. Job listing
