Careers at ThermoFisher Scientific


My work is a Story of Elevation


My Regulatory Story

“I work on the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Regulatory Affairs team. I am responsible for managing in vitro diagnostics (IVD) and the regulatory compliance activities within our region. In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are tests that can detect diseases, conditions, or infections in our products. Regulatory compliance is important because it shows that Thermo Fisher Scientific is aware of and adhering to the regulations within distinct regions. For example, in Europe, when we put new in vitro diagnostic medical devices onto the market, they are required to bear a mark known as the “CE” mark, a declaration that the product meets all requirements and can be freely marketed within the European Union. In the instance of a product recall, Regulatory Affairs is responsible for alerting competent authorities within our region where the product was sold. My team helps Thermo Fisher Scientific comply with regulations, ensuring that our high quality products reach our customers.”


Heather's Story

“As a Regulatory Analyst, I'm responsible for the registration of our medical devices in South Korea and ensuring they comply with all government and regional regulation requirements. When a medical device enters the diagnostics market in South Korea, several authorities are involved to inspect its safety and efficacy. During this process, I need to be well-versed on the background and characteristics of the product. For example, the product’s label, manual and electronic components need to comply with the country’s specific requirements, and the clinical efficacy needs to be declared based on clinical trial data. Because the diagnostic and medical markets are directly related to public health and welfare, the safety and efficacy requirements are much stricter than those for products for the research field. Ensuring compliance with the respective standards and codes not only protects our company, it protects our customers and the end users who may benefit from the device.”

Nicole's Story

“I provide legal, business and transactional counsel to the Biosciences Division (BID). In this role, I, along with team of three attorneys, provide comprehensive legal support to the business units comprising BID. We work closely with functional partners on in-licensing, out-licensing, commercial agreements, collaborations, strategic partnerships and alliances, as well as providing general legal counsel to the businesses we support. Our paramount goals are to protect the company, mitigate legal risk, and enable good business, both in agreements we work on and more generally as trusted advisers to our internal clients.”


Ruben's Story

“As a member of the LSG Regional IP team, I support the BID business in tailoring global/European IP strategies. This includes close coordination with local R&D to harvest and evaluate inventions and translate regional innovation into conceptual filing strategies. My daily tasks within IP Legal include freedom to operate analyses for new product introductions, mapping of competitor technologies, patent drafting and prosecution, and coordination of outside counsel work (e.g. in European opposition proceedings). My team constantly monitors new developments in European patent law that may have implications on global drafting and prosecution to provide qualified advice to our colleagues in IP Legal to help them shape their patent portfolios. We also support the Licensing & Commercial Supply group in addressing IP-related contractual issues. In addition, I am taking care of local inventorship issues that require specific consideration under national law, such as in Germany or Norway. During the last three years, I was given the opportunity to be trained and finally qualified as a European patent attorney. The combination of jurisprudence and technological progress both of which require continuous learning makes this function particularly exciting and diversified.”
