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.

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
