Shari V. Medendorp
Senior Vice President, Biometrics
Shari Medendorp, M.P.H., Senior Vice President, Biometrics, is well aware that the data she works with has a direct impact on patients’ treatment options and well-being.
“Earlier in my career, I was a biostatistician at a large research hospital,” Ms. Medendorp says. “Working with patients and their families made me appreciate that the data we work with every day comes from real people who invest themselves personally in clinical trials. This data provides the foundation for just about every key decision made throughout the development process.”
“The data we collect, manage and analyze provide the foundation for just about every key decision made throughout the development process.”
Of course, there’s more to clinical trial success than numbers. Success hinges on the ability to create actionable information, so Ms. Medendorp works closely with our biostatistics team to turn raw data into knowledge that drives decisions and fuels the progress that moves new products forward. Information delivery is customized to the customer and project to ensure a highly individualized level of service.
Before coming to Premier Research, Ms. Medendorp held data management positions at CliniRx USA Inc., Reliance Clinical Research Services, and SCIREX Corporation. Prior to that, she worked with medical staff at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation on the design and analysis of clinical studies.
Ms. Medendorp holds a master’s degree in public health from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Calvin College in Grand Rapids. She has written some 75 articles for medical journals, including the Journal of the American Medical Association and the Annals of Neurology.
