Summary

My professional path as a project manager has been varied and progressive in complexity. I’ve initially been the local responsible for clinical study set-up, protocol and safety follow-up, and recruitment targets. I’ve also worked at sponsor level articulating multi-stakeholder clinical teams, developing protocols in diverse disease areas and having them implemented by local teams. Since then I’ve expanded my expertise area outside of clinical by being responsible for the management of a senior inter-disciplinary technical pre-marketing team focused on Market Access, participating in the implementation of value streams and embedding of Lean capabilities. - Certified Project Management Professional - Experience in Clinical Research - Experience in Medical Affairs - Experience in Epidemiology
