Our aim is to foster the quantitative understanding of diseases and pharmacological interventions in close collaboration with other disciplines.

We believe that every member of the PMx group should be empowered to shape the future of PMx at Boehringer Ingelheim by actively contributing or leading internal and external working groups focusing on e.g. PBPK, disease strategies, innovative methods, IT, standardization and processes.

Within our group we value active contributions to discussions, a culture of sharing knowledge, active feedback and a positive “how to” attitude in challenging situations.
