Biography

Biography

Chris began working in clinical trials in 2000, working as a Project Manager for a commercial Clinical Research Organisation managing Phase I/II trials of Investigational Medicinal Products.  

In 2008 he joined a team at Plymouth University, coordinating the non-commercial CUPID trial (ISRCTN62942668), before moving into the UKCRC-registered Peninsula Clinical Trials Unit at Plymouth University (PenCTU) in 2010. At PenCTU, as a Senior Trial Manager, Chris managed a variety of trials including Phase III CTIMPs, non-CTIMPs, pilot trials, feasibility studies and trials of complex interventions. 

After a brief spell working for University of Exeter, Chris re-joined PenCTU as Quality Assurance Manager in January 2017 and became Deputy Director in 2021. 

Chris is a member of the UKCRC CTU QA Operations Group.
