Bill's passion is to identify biomarkers that predict response of the drug in the patients.
*Oversee predictive and prognostic biomarker strategy development, logistics, data analysis and act as point of contact in clinical trials targeting anemia,renal disease and cancer
*Design and experimentally validate a number of biomarkers for a novel anti-cancer compound through immunological activation
*Real time analysis of biomarker data in relation to other clinical endpoints to help make informed decision for any protocol amendment.
*Identify and work closely with external vendors to develop and validate biomarker assay
*Identify KOL and set up collaboration
*Review clinical protocol and provide input on biomarker prioritization and scheduling
*Engage with biostatistician to write up statistical analysis plan for biomarkers
*Supported by TD Operations for execution of biomarker sampling logistics
*Direct Ph.D. and non-Ph.D scientific staff of research scientists
