Cristina joined IMARC from Hearthstone’s Research Team where she carried out federally funded research projects in gerontology and applied cognitive aging. As internal clinical research associate for over seven years, Cristina assisted with clinical research focusing on dementia programming, on the elderly psychological well-being and distress, on developing cognitive interventions to improve medication adherence to complex medications regimens, and on aquatic conditioning therapy of the osteoarthritic knee.
Cristina joined the IMARC monitoring team in March 2014. Since being at IMARC, she has monitored studies investigating treatments for aortic aneurysms, treatments for peripheral vascular disease, methods of electrical stimulation for pain relief, and endoscopic studies. Cristina brings valuable experience from her previous position, which allows her to thoroughly assess sites’ procedures for conducting and documenting research, and assist sites in finding optimum hands-on measures to meet study requirements. She also brings enthusiasm, empathy, and adaptability across various settings and therapeutic areas, and she is focused on team work and on establishing industrious relationships with the study teams. Her analytical skills model IMARC’s approach on documenting clinical data source accurately, towards meeting the requirements of the clinical investigational plans, and in compliance with the federal and local regulations. She is firm in identifying site specific resources and is comprehensive in following- up with sponsor teams, sites, fellow CRAs, and Lead CRAs.
Cristina has a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Cleveland State University and a medical degree from Victor Babes University Timisoara.
