    Lead Field Application Scientist

    500 - 999 employees

    Grew usage of Pipeline Pilot (scientific informatics platform) in the scientific community by identifying users' needs and advising or developing appropriate solutions, via various ways:
    • Demonstration: Explaining benefits to users, and developing tailored proof-of-concept, each week in a different scientific environment or company;
    • Training: Leading by example, provided more than a hundred training, with excellent feedback from both new and expert users, about most of the component collections;
    • Support: Became a trusted advisor (inside and outside company) in a variety of Pipeline Pilot component collections (esp. Imaging, Reporting, Text Analytics) and in data visualization;
    • Consulting Services: Engaged in various projects for scientific expertise (e.g. imaging, PKPD, computational chemistry) or interface usability.

    Initiated and developed projects recognized and reused by the community or my team:
    • The creation of the Bibliography Platform led to a publication and the wide promotion of the Text Analytics collection;
    • The integration of PKPD tools like NONMEM, PsN, and WinBUGS generated new business in advance on the long-term company strategy to go towards clinical drug development;
    • Managed team effort to create a standard, and now essential, demonstration slide deck, summarizing on all component collections.

    Computational Chemist

    +5000 employees

    • Defined a global in silico strategy to predict human intestinal absorption, based on three quantitative structure-property relationship models predicting (1) passive absorption, (2) P-Glycoprotein involvement and (3) its impact on drugs.
    • Created these multivariate data analysis models based on physicochemical (Volsurf approach) and pharmacophoric (Almond approach) 3D descriptors derived from GRID molecular interaction fields. Compiled literature data and advised to conduct assays to fill in missing data.
    • Conceived a Python-based Intranet application (1) predicting ADME properties including these models as well as other models, (2) operating dissimilarity-based compound selection.
