my professional path as a Project Manager has been varied and progressive in complexity and Leadership.
at a local or country level, i was responsible for clinical study set-up, science)" >Protocol and safety follow-up, and recruitment targets. at a global or sponsor level, i worked articulating cross-functional clinical teams, developing clinical studies in diverse disease areas and having them implemented by local teams. i then expanded my expertise area outside of Clinical Development by becoming responsible for the functional management of global Epidemiology and medical affairs teams. i supervised a team focused on scientific engagement and Market access. since then i also successfully supervised a senior issue management team, supported the Project Management office on the full project costing exercise and delivered Training to newcomers in the team.
my new challenge is now to fully integrate my technical, Leadership and strategic knowledge into value management framework for the measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (mmr,v) program.
