“You have to forgive yourself and not expect perfection” - Robin Eckert In this episode, I had the privilege to talk to Robin Eckert. Robin is an engineer by training who later transitioned into clinical safety and clinical trial management. She is a very accomplished individual who has led complex structural heart medical device trials. Robin is also one of the most creative individuals in the clinical research space. If you’re a gal (or a guy) wanting to transition into clinical research or change roles at your current company, Robin will inspire you with her personal story. We wrap up our discussion with top-notch resources in the interventional cardiology space. I hope you enjoy this interview with Robin as much as I did.
