Under Sandra Maddock’s leadership, IMARC Research was founded in 1999 to deliver high quality clinical research support services. From its infancy as a monitoring company to its position today as a leading full service medical device CRO, IMARC has grown significantly under Sandra’s watch. Drawing on her experiences with coronary and peripheral stents, angioplasty balloons, combination products, orthopedic devices, endovascular grafts for the treatment of thoracic and abdominal aneurysms, wound care, neurovascular devices, and other types of investigational products, Sandra’s “hands on” approach has become her trademark. While involved in all aspects of running a clinical research trial, she most recently lends executive-level coaching and guidance to study teams worldwide. She has served as a global auditor on large pivotal trials and has coached numerous study teams of all experience levels through the process of readying themselves for a regulatory inspection.
Prior to starting IMARC, Sandra gained valuable experience as a critical care nurse and cardiac research coordinator and has never lost her focus on the patients. She is a sought after speaker, founding member of the Northeastern Ohio Chapter of ACRP, and an approved provider of Continuing Education through the California Board of Registered Nursing. Sandra received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Kent State University and her Masters Degree in Clinical Research Administration from George Washington University.
