"Jonathan's deep experience, relationships and expertise will help our customers better leverage these unique data assets to optimize the clinical trial process and our clinical trial platform."
Prior to BioClinica, Andrus served in roles of increasing responsibility for contract research and specialty consulting organizations, where he led study operations oversight, systems testing and validation, managed data, and conducted computer system and global quality management system audits.
"Joining Clinical Ink channels my personal passion for advancing research and education as part of a data-driven organization that's leading the industry by changing the way clinical trials are managed," said Andrus.
