Vice President, Clinical Development
The best part of working at Avanir is working with the people – they’re great. Some people are more traditional, logical thinkers and others, more creative. When you all work together to problem solve, across functions and even with vendor companies, that’s usually when you find the best ideas. It’s been a very satisfying experience.
Senior Director, Clinical Research
Our vision is to provide the three pillars of medical affairs — evidence, education and information — to our external customers: patients, physicians, providers and policy makers. We also make sure that all functions across the organization are working in alignment with marketing and R&D, ensuring that we have a cohesive and strategic life-cycle plan.
Vice President, Medical Affairs
At Avanir, I especially derive satisfaction in knowing that what we do daily will ultimately benefit a number of patients, especially in areas of high unmet needs like Alzheimer’s disease and Traumatic Brain Injury.
Senior Director, Medical Affairs
I am very passionate about what I do, and Avanir has given me the opportunity to contribute to the development of innovative products that can really make a difference to patients. The culture at Avanir is very collaborative, and I really enjoy working with a wide range of talented, creative and fun individuals. We all work hard, but always as a team where individual contributions are encouraged and appreciated.
Senior Director, Field Medical Affairs
One thing that is really fun for me with Medical Affairs is that you are at the hub of a lot of things. You get to work cross-functionally with so many different teams here at Avanir whether it is the legal team, the commercial team, the clinical team, and all the different aspects of the organization. I also get to work closely with thought leaders, so all of these things make it a really exciting position to be in.
