We in the Technical Research & Development (TRD) team are responsible for developing innovative technical product designs and robust, scalable manufacturing processes.
We are responsible for the manufacture and supply of all pre-clinical and clinical study materials across all stages of clinical and pharmaceutical development. We add value by working with and enabling a broad spectrum of cross-divisional partners, including early Research teams (see Research) late phase Development and registration teams, our commercial manufacturing teams, (see Technical Operations) and our Generics development teams.
Given this huge breadth of areas covered by TRD, we as associates benefit from one of the strongest possible learning environments and professional, career development opportunities.
We have an impact on a variety of other Novartis functions too. As a team of 2500 associates we work across 4 continents and 8 countries, developing practically the entire Novartis portfolio, across all Disease areas, including cutting edge Cell and Gene therapies.
