The MedTech Epidemiology and Real World Data Science team is an industry leader in using real world evidence for medical devices and technologies.  We are driven by J&J’s Credo to benefit the patients we serve of all races, ethnicities, genders and sexual orientation, to care for our employees, to benefit the communities and environment we work in and to work for the success our shareholders.
