Maria has recently graduated from St. Petersburg State Chemical Pharmaceutical Academy with a specialist degree and decided to begin a carrier in clinical research with GCT after holding several positions in sterilization process chain and organization of production. She joined the company in 2015 at the entry-level position of Research Associate. Maria completed necessary SOP and GCP trainings, rapidly gained the necessary skill set and next year was promoted to a CRA due to her ability of balancing strong people skills and detail-attentive “checklist mentality” just in the right ratio for the job.

Ms. Seregina has experience in Gastroenterology and Neurology being at the times involved in monitoring several studies GCT conducts in Russia. Her tasks include ensuring that patients meet the inclusion criteria, reviewing CRFs to guarantee that they have been filled out correctly and checking clinical trial supplies to be stored and distributed properly, and other necessary site-related activities.

For me being in the clinical trials industry is a wonderful new experience where every day there is a chance to learn something new. Although I joined GCT team not long ago, I hope it is going to be a continuous efficient cooperation for both sides. It is truly inspiring to know that good quality of your work can improve someone’s state of health.

During her afterwork hours, Maria likes taking long walks with her friends around the beautiful historical centre of Saint-Petersburg and spending weekends with her family and dogs at a country house. Maria’s special passion is cooking and Italian cuisine recipes are her absolute favorites.
