Study Coordinator / CRA inhouse
April 2009 --- September 2011
I was responsible for more than 20 clinical studies (phase I – IV), sponsored and non-sponsored (HOVON, EORTC, bone marrow transplant studies). Next to tasks as data management, setting up schedules for patients and the research team, organizing and taking part in meetings (interdepartmental and (inter-)national) such as initiation and closing out visits, writing SOP’s., I informed, instructed, motivated and patients, nursing staff and research doctors before, during and after a study. I stimulated, controlled and evaluated the protocol loyalty of the research team and other involved disciplines such as pharmacovigilance and submitting and communicating with the ethics committee. And this whilst keeping within budgetary constraints.

My daily tasks were analyzing animal tissue samples or human serum samples of phase I to IV studies. The goal was to determine the concentration of drugs with LC-MS.
