Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.

These positions are in Molecular Profiling within Technology & Discovery Centers in Tarrytown, NY. There are 3 openings for Summer 2020. Each opening is described below.

Position 1:

This position is in our Molecular Profiling group in Tarrytown, NY. This student will be developing an artificial intelligence method, such as natural language processing, for the classification of public gene expression studies. In particular, this work focuses on the extraction of features like therapeutic focus area and sample class from broad data set summaries and metadata. Altogether these methods will allow us to curate a large database of public gene signatures that can be used to empower data sciences in genomic studies.

Position 2:

This student will mainly work on cell type classification problem and statistical comparison method for cell composition. Single cell clustering is an essential step in analyzing single cell data. Louvain clustering algorithm is mostly used, but we realize the algorithm has some limitations that need to be improved. This student will test other options and develop new methods to cluster single cells using scRNA-seq data. If the intern has more time, they will work on HLA typing project in collaboration with the RGC, or data integration method across different sequencing data type.

Position 3:

This position is in our Molecular Profiling group. This student will be directly involved in the effort to discover new vaccine and/or treatment targets in microbial pathogens, including viruses, bacteria and fungi. This student will use a novel computational approach which takes advantage of the thousands of genome sequences available in public databases. This student will survey and compare these genome sequences to select the top most conserved genes. These genes will then be curated and ranked according to finely-selected criteria pertinent to antigens. Overall, this project aligns with the Molecular Profiling mission to characterize new gene targets with great antigenic potential in order to control the spread of infectious diseases.
