TRiNDS Team Spotlight: Rachel Simoni, Clinical Operations Specialist
All of us at TRiNDS come to work every day committed to conducting the best quality rare disease and neuromuscular research. Today we’d like to introduce Rachel Simoni, Clinical Operations Specialist. We sat down with Rachel to learn more about her and her work.
How did you come to work in clinical research?
Rachel: A year after graduating with a biology degree from Pennsylvania State University – Behrend, I was told about a job as a Clinical Trial Assistant with TRiNDS. Because of my interest in genetics, I immediately applied for the position. I have been working with TRiNDS ever since, and am now a Clinical Operations Specialist.
What does your typical day look like at TRiNDS?
Rachel: My typical day consists of spending a lot of time within our electronic Trial Master File (eTMF) and Clinical Trial Management System (CTMS), supporting partnering clinical research organizations (CROs) and sites with these systems, and supporting study Project Managers and internal clinical research associates (CRAs) with our ongoing studies.
What are you most excited about for the future of neuromuscular research?
Rachel: I look forward to the continued growth of the neuromuscular research community, the continued support and care for neuromuscular dystrophy patients and their families, and the expanding knowledge that the community gains from clinical trials.
