Sensor Pill Intern
Company: Proteus USA
Location: Redwood City
Posted on: March 18, 2019
Description The Company: Proteus Digital Health is enabling a new category of pharmaceuticals: Digital Medicines. These include widely used drugs, formulated so they communicate when they have been ingested; a wearable patch that detects medicines and captures physiologic response; mobile applications to support patient self-care and physician decision-making; and data analytics to serve the needs of health system managers. The ingestible sensor and wearable patch at the heart of digital medicines were approved by the U.S. FDA in 2012, and also have regulatory clearances in the European Union and China. The company has more than 450 issued patents that protect this enabling technology. Proteus Digital Health is privately held by investors that include Carlyle, Essex Woodlands, Kaiser Permanente, Medtronic, Novartis, Otsuka, and ON Semiconductor. The Products: Proteus Digital Health partners with health systems across the United States to provide Proteus Discover, a digital medicines program that measures medication treatment effectiveness and helps physicians, care teams, and patients improve clinical outcomes. Proteus Discover provides the tools and data needed for health organizations to build patient engagement, efficiency, and measurement into the delivery of care, and an opportunity to mitigate the high costs of uncontrolled diseases. In November 2017, the FDA granted its first approval of a fully-integrated digital medicine, Abilify MyCite. Abilify MyCite is a drug-device combination product of Otsuka Pharmaceutical's aripiprazole, an atypical antipsychotic, embedded with Proteus' ingestible sensor that communicates with a wearable sensor patch, smartphone application, and the healthcare provider's portal. Join Us: Come to join our unique collection of innovative scientists, engineers, market makers, designers, doctors, pharmacists, developers, clinicians, and other digital health industry pioneers, and assist us to achieve our compelling vision, Healthcare for Everyone, Everywhere. Learn more about what we do (video): ******************************************* and follow us on Twitter @ProteusDH and LinkedIn . Further information is available at *************** . Overview- Proteus Project Work with the Ingestible Sensors team on building foundational knowledge to integrate sensors into placebo tablet forms. Tablet formulations can modulate key sensor metrics such as signal amplitude and counts. Goals of this project are to identify critical tablet physical properties that affect the sensor and characterize the role of various pharmaceutical excipients in modifying these properties. Over the course of the internship. the intern will test the device for in vitro functionality and analyze data sets using R or JMP. The intern will have the opportunity to learn about pharmaceutical tablet formulation and process development and apply these skills to optimize sensor performance. Essential Responsibilities -Design tablet formulations with common pharmaceutical excipients -Manufacture tablets using powder compression equipment -Test the performance of ingestible sensors in tablet formulations -Analyze sensor data metrics using JMP, R or other analytic tools Qualifications -Critical thinker capable of designing experiments to solve complex problems -Interested in understanding manufacturing processes and analytical testing -Basic understanding of batteries and electrochemistry -Some experience using data analysis tools such as JMP/R/Python pandas Education -BS or Masters -Materials Science/Chemical Engineering -Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering
