Linda on Triall: “We are entering an era that is characterized by the democratization of innovation. Large incumbent parties, and small niche innovators together collaborate to further the development of innovative medicine. Hand in hand with this trend, regulatory compliance is more important than ever. These developments deserve an infrastructure that supports collaboration, innovation, and compliance at the same time, and Triall offers exactly that. I am excited to be a part of this, and look forward to new innovations that build upon Triall’s ecosystem to address society’s unmet medical needs.
Linda her diverse knowledge base, consortium building capabilities, and entrepreneurial mindset are key in growing our ecosystem. We’re very happy to have her on our team!
