This week we’re joined by Silvina and Maria, both Teckro employees, as they compare notes on their past lives working in clinical research and reflect on the pivotal role of clinical research associates (CRAs). Silvina Baudino, Teckro director of site engagement, and Maria Milas, Teckro solutions consultant, talk about how CRAs are the “glue” of trials, overseeing multiple sites and building strong working relationships with research staff. With topics ranging from lifelong friendships made working in clinical research to the importance of trust and musings about technology and the future of the industry, Silvina and Maria draw on their experience to spotlight CRAs.
"Just to give you an example, my best friend used to be a CRA when I was a study coordinator more than 20 years ago. That is the kind of relationship you sometimes have with your CRAs."
