  • Functioning also as a Senior CRA, you will also ensure control of study medication, deliver site-specific training, tracking enrolment at a site level and reviewing essential documents at site
  • Working consistently and efficiently in this role, no two days are the same as you collaborate with other study team members to bring these life-improving treatments to market.
