Employee Spotlight:  Maya Shimony, Lead Data Manager, TRiNDS Data Management

All of us at the TRiNDS team come to work every day committed to conducting the best quality rare disease and neuromuscular research. Today we’d like to introduce Maya Shimony, Lead Data Manager in TRiNDS Data Management. We sat down with Maya to learn more about her and her work.

How did you come to work in clinical research?

Maya: My dad is a physician and researcher, so I grew up with my high school and college summers being spent working in a neonatal neurology lab. I worked on various research projects while pursuing a graduate degree in public health and immediately went into a clinical research role after graduating.

What does your typical day look like at TRiNDS?

Maya: While a study is ongoing, my day is spent reviewing and cleaning data that has been entered into the database by the study site coordinators, managing third-party data like from a central lab or imaging group, generating reports of the study data for our clinical operations partners, and answering questions via email from sites or the central study team. We often need to make case report form or database modifications mid-study too, so I coordinate that process.

What are you most excited about for the future of neuromuscular research?

Maya: There is so much more data from so many different sources being incorporated into clinical research studies nowadays. In additional to the clinical data collected by the study site personnel, we have central labs, specialty labs, imaging, patient reported outcomes, wearables data, and so many other examples. With all this new data, I think the conclusions and analyses coming out of our neuromuscular trials will be much more participant-focused and robust.
