The Medical Science Liaison Career Networking Lunch – 2018-04-23 12:00:00 -Room Ward 5-230


NUPF is excited to announce the third session of our lunch networking program!! This time, NUPF brings you the opportunity to meet in small groups with two MSLs working in the pharmaceutical industry and learn about their backgrounds and pathways to reach their current roles.



Jeffrey Mosenson, Ph.D. is a Medical Science Liaison and former researcher with over 15 combined years of experience in Academia, sales, and patient care. Jeffrey entered the Ph.D. program Cell Biology, Neurobiology, and Anatomy from Loyola University Chicago in 2008 where he identified a central role for inducible heat shock protein 70 (HSP70i) in mediating autoimmune vitiligo (skin depigmentation disorder). His work also led to the generation of a mutant isoform of HSP70i which shows promise in treating vitiligo. After graduating with highest distinction in 2013, Jeffrey pursued a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago where he studied the development of stem cells, and utilized novel genome editing techniques to treat sickle cell disease. Jeffrey received the competitive National Research Service Award for his work, and served as President of the Postdoctoral Association. Currently, Jeffrey is working as a Medical Science Liaison at Ortho-Dermatologics where he is responsible for developing collaborations with health care providers, thought leaders, and key organizations. As part of the Medical Affairs team, Jeffrey is gaining valuable insights which contribute to the future direction of drug development, and optimizing patient care.
