R.Batta graduated with an MSc in Computer Science and went on to secure jobs in data management as a Clinical Trial Practitioner (CTP) and as a project manager. Despite R.Batta’s successes and achievements, she had always wanted to pursue a career in a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) role, but didn’t know how to secure the skills for the role and gain entry into the field.
I’ve always been fascinated by how drugs come to the market, enjoyed working as part of a team, with Principal Investigators (PIs) and everyone involved in trials, I love travelling, I had experience in pharmacy and data management so I knew I wanted to be a CRA…but I didn’t have a degree in medicine.
I didn’t know if I had the right experience to take on the role. I was in a job and position I really wasn’t enjoying but I was scared to make a career change. But when I found CGX I decided to take the leap.
