Moderna PharmD Fellowship

Moderna's mission is to deliver on the promise of mRNA science to create a new generation of transformative medicines for patients. 

Global Regulatory Science 

The Global Regulatory Science department drives rapid and efficient development of molecules and medicinal products derived from an mRNA platform. We work with Global Health Authorities and regulators to ensure patient access to transformative therapies, while building a sustainable and resilient function within Moderna. 

Program Goals 

The goal of the program is: 

To provide PharmD graduates the opportunity to gain rapid experience in the pharmaceutical industry with a focus on Regulatory Science while working on diverse projects to deepen their understanding of product development. 

Moderna aims to launch the fellowship program with 1 fellow, starting in July. The fellow will join the Global Regulatory Science (GRS) team, in Washington DC, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The fellowship will focus on Regulatory Policy, but the fellow will also have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in other regulatory functions including: 

  • Regulatory Strategy 
  • Regulatory International 
  • Regulatory Operations
  • Regulatory CMC
  • Regulatory Labeling 
  • Regulatory Advertising and Promotion 

The fellow will work directly with several experienced regulatory professionals in the above listed specialties and across multiple therapeutic areas. Projects will be assigned based on the fellow's areas of interest and available opportunities to build their competencies as a regulatory professional. 

While the focus will be on Regulatory Affairs, the fellow will work on cross functional projects with additional departments, such as: 

  • Clinical Development 
  • Clinical Operations 
  • Safety
  • Nonclinical 
  • Translational Research
