Head of Medical Affairs Germany (m/w/d) Rare Diseases
Our Client is on a mission to redefine the commercialization of orphan medicines to improve patient access across Europe and beyond. Our Client was formed to capitalize on two primary objectives, one economic, and one humanitarian. The economic goal is to offer end-to-end commercialization and distribution partnerships with research-based biopharmaceutical originators to unlock the full value of their orphan medicines in European markets. This is the unique expertise and core competency of their team following decades of operating experience navigating this area. Equally important, our humanitarian goals stem from their commitment to enabling access to novel medicines for patients who suffer from orphan diseases regardless of where in Europe they live. Our Client is a fully authorized distributor of medicinal products within the European Economic Area, Switzerland and the UK, with a Wholesale Distributor Authorization (WDA) issued by Farmatec in the Netherlands.
