New eCRFs (Colleague Revelation Forms)

OpenClinica has welcomed several new team members over the last few months. We’ve collected some eCRFs (Collegue Revelation Forms) to introduce them!

Name: Paul Bowen
Title: Product Owner
Responsibility: I bridge the gap between our stakeholders and our engineering team to ensure that we build the features into OpenClinica that are needed most.
Background: Prior to joining OpenClinica, I spent ten years at Quintiles/Outcome Sciences developing an EDC platform for late phase studies. I also spent one year at Clinical Ink working on a patient engagement app.
What I love about research: I like being a part of something that is making people’s lives better in a significant way.
What I love about technology: Technology provides us with many new options to improve the way we do research. Working to figure out the best solutions is a fun part of this job.
What I love outside of work: When the weather is nice, my girlfriend and I like taking long walks with our dog. When it’s not as nice, we like watching sci-fi TV and movies.


Name:
 Bryan Farrow
Title: eClinical Catalyst
Responsibility: I’m the link between the data management community and OpenClinica. It’s my job to distribute news about our products and services to data managers who’ve been looking for solutions to industry-wide problems like integration and ease of use. Just as importantly, I bring unmet challenges back to our incredible team of developers and customer success professionals so that we can find a solution.
Background: Prior to joining OpenClinica, I spent five years at DrugDev, learning how just how much technology can affect the duration, cost and experience of running a trial. Prior to that, I was responsible for physician and patient communications at Boston Children’s Hospital.
What I love about research: The journey and the destination. Asking questions, devising ways to get an answer, and analyzing evidence are thrilling. With clinical research, we get to do all that with the aim of improving lives.
What I love about technology: For me, technology comes down to problem-solving. If you’re curious and persistent, you can always find a better way. And it’s so gratifying when you do.
What I love outside of work: My family above all. I love being a father to my two kids and a partner to my incredible wife. But when I need some “me time”, I usually reach for a book or journal dealing with philosophy. That was my major in college, and I’m still enamored with the power of logic and the gravity of big ethical and political questions.

Name: Brittany Stark
Title: Project Manager
Responsibility: I direct client projects involving the implementation of clinical trials using OpenClinica software. I oversee the planning, build, testing, and delivery of client projects on time, within scope and budget.
Background: Prior to joining OpenClinica, I spent 4 years in the Cancer Clinical Trials Office at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, working with phase 0-IV clinical trials in oncology. During this time, I gained experience as a Clinical Research Coordinator, Regulatory Affairs Specialist and later Clinical Trials Staff Educator. Prior to this, I spent over 4 years working in academia at the University of Kentucky (in a Human Behavioral Pharmacology and Clinical Psychology Lab) and later at the University of Maine (teaching SPSS as part of a Research Methods and Designs Course Lab).
What I love about research: The potential to advance our understanding of the world we live in and change lives for the better.

Name: Chris White
Title: Customer Success Team Lead
Responsibility: I direct client projects involving the implementation of clinical trials using OpenClinica software. I oversee the planning, build, testing, and delivery of client projects on time, within scope and budget.
Background: Prior to joining OpenClinica, I spent two years in the consulting industry working with many different types of software. Prior to that, I spent 14 years creating positive customer experiences with two successful start-ups, helping to build their client focused operations.
What I love about research: There is still part of me that is the seven-year-old Calvin (from Calvin and Hobbes), always asking questions, wanting to know and understand the wide world around me.
