With my practical experience in GCP and interest in clinical development in general I preferably like to work on a variety of tasks from starting up to closing, feasibility checks, selection visits, co visits and monitoring. My main interest is stimulating the trial team to follow the minimal GCP requirements as efficiently as possible and promote long standing relation ships with the trial site, including the corresponding increase in medical knowledge about the disease involved in the trial. If you ask colleagues about my personal properties they might say in general that I am enthusiastic, but calm and persistent if it comes to important GCP quality related matters, without losing the view on practicability. E.g. as a Quality System Manager I have introduced (internal) compliance checks to be performed together as a Team effort to enable a Clinical Platform to learn from trends. Also an important process for Specialised Nutrition was tackled, prepared and introduced: Release of study products, compliant with a well organised GCP- GMP interface which is a real challenge! In the past years I have developed a basic attitude regarding quality and motivating of colleagues to work compliant with SOPs and regulations and pay attention to the minimal GCP requirements.
