Summer Internship

Healthcare, Science•Chicago

Description

  • Envision spending your summer working with energetic colleagues and inspirational leaders, all while gaining world-class experience in one of the most dynamic organizations in the pharmaceutical industry. This is a reality for AbbVie Interns. 
  • The Safety Pharmacology group provides in vitro and in vivo data regarding the effects of molecules on the cardiovascular and nervous systems. Intravenous (IV) administration of poorly water-soluble small molecule therapeutics can lead to precipitation during mixing with blood, a concern for programs developing medicines for intravenous indications and limiting characterization of pharmacological and safety endpoints in preclinical models. The dynamic precipitation processes that take place during  in vivo administration are currently unpredictable with established technology. We developed the Optical Spatial PREcipitation analYzer (OSPREY) as a breakthrough technology to quantify the amount and size of compound precipitates in whole blood using a flow-through system that models IV administration.
