I am an experienced clinical research professional, with over 30 years’ experience in both pharmaceutical company and Contract Research Organisation (CRO) environments.
After an initial period of research work on stress biology, I joined a pharmaceutical company as a data assistant. I later moved on to become a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) and was responsible for managing clinical trials in the Far East region. I then became a project manager and was in charge of several worldwide antibiotic and oncology clinical development programmes.
I then moved to a large CRO to set up a medical writing group, and I managed its growth from one writer to a team of seven people over a period of four years. In 1999 I set up my own business, providing freelance medical writing and clinical research services to pharmaceutical companies and CROs.
Given my wide background and experience, I am familiar with almost all aspects of the pharmaceutical industry, which enables me to bring a breadth of knowledge to writing projects, particularly protocol development and submission planning. I work equally well alone or as part of a team. In addition, through my network of other freelance clinical research professionals, I can help put together and manage teams for larger projects.
