Data Science


At GSK we believe that medicines are key to achieving our ambitions in immuno-oncology and other immunologically driven diseases. We are growing our UK-based Drug discovery and development teams using cutting edge technologies to bring medicines of the future faster to patients who need them. As a result there is continuous growth in demand for support activities in data publication, visualisation and analysis to help us discover these medicines that will make a difference to patient’s lives.
