We’re incredibly proud of our CRAs
at ICON and we believe that they’re the best in the business. But don’t just take our word for it. Two of our Clinical Research Associates - Derek Ansel
and Angelo Evans
- have been recognised in the PharmaTimes Clinical Researcher of the Year
competition, scooping nominations for New Clinical Research Associate and Experienced Clinical Research Associate respectively.
The prestigious international competition has this year attracted entrants from 48 different countries around the world, giving research professionals the chance to compare and benchmark their skills against those of their peers. The awards are judged by an independent committee of industry leaders and every entrant in the competition will receive mentoring and feedback.
To reach the finals, candidates had to record a high score on a multiple choice questionnaire based on ICH/GCP/FDA regulatory guidelines before responding to a Clinical Challenge. The next step is Finals Day, taking place at the Georgia World Conference Centre in Atlanta on April 17 - the same day as the black-tie awards ceremony. Finalists will complete a challenge and present back to the judging panel, who will ultimately decide on the winners of each category.
The recognition for Derek and Angelo is a great reflection on the work our team does to drive excellence and deliver consistent performance. Angelo’s nomination is also noteworthy as it coincides with his 10 year ICON anniversary, celebrating a decade of dedicated service with the company. Angelo is regarded as one of ICON’s highest performing Principal CRAs, so his recognition at this global scale is especially exciting.
Our finalists will receive valuable feedback from experts in the biopharmaceutical, site management and CRO industries, further boosting their knowledge in the field. It’s a great honour and we’re thrilled to be supporting them at this event.
