I am a senior trilingual study manager with CRA experience at the sponsor and the CRO. I gained experience in all phases and stages of a clinical study in different domains: from the development, start up, enrolment, conduct until reporting of global phase I to III research and therapeutic studies. I take leadership and promote an open communication across the international team of CRAs/CTAs, team/project members, vendors and sponsors to ensure high quality performance, completion of the project within the timelines and budget. My role as Local Training Representative confirms my coaching skills. I have a drive for results and work with passion. I am currently looking for new challenges.
