Department Overview - NCE Analytical R&D

Development, validation, and transfer of drug product analytical methods to support CMC submissions

Assignment Details

The in-process analysis of drug product assay is a key part of a PAT strategy. However, the use of NIR or Raman on tablets has some shortcomings: quantitation challenges with low drug load formulations, difficulty extracting purity information, and need to maintain chemometric models.

We are looking to develop and evaluate an automated extraction system coupled with UHPLC for analysis of drug product potency in process.

The successful intern will focus on a few key tasks:

  • Familiarize with the instrument and assemble a package which can be used to reproduce external PoC.
  • Improve upon previous methodology and work around pitfalls. Possibly explore portability options as an in-process PAT tool.
  • Show use of optimized package on Abbvie assets. Evaluate the system's capability to measure potency for high and low drug load tablets across IR and ER formulations.


Evaluate system for impurity analysis

Basic:

  • Completed at least one year of college education before beginning internship

  • Must be authorized to work in the U.S. on a permanent basis without requiring sponsorship (students on an F1 visa with CPT can be accommodated).

  • Skills in HPLC, UHPLC-UV, SFC-UV-MS
