Robert Edwards - Director of Outsourced Solutions & Training

I have a Biochemistry and Physiology degree and a Masters in Clinical Chemistry. I started out working as a Clinical Biochemist in the NHS, but I transitioned into Clinical Research in1993 and have spent most of the time since in Clinical Operations.

 I started my career in the industry as a CRA and then moved into Project Management and on into various  Clinical Operations Management roles in a variety of companies, both CROs and Pharma organisations. 

A lot of my roles have involved a training element or helping people to develop and learn new skills, and I have also had a couple of specific training roles during my career thus far. I am joining cpl from Boehringer Ingelheim, where I have worked since 2015, as Global Clinical Operations Learning Manager.
