TransPerfect Life Sciences Expands Leadership Team with Senior E-Clinical Industry Experts
NEW YORK, NY, December 5, 2017 – TransPerfect Life Sciences, a leading provider of technologies and services to support clinical trials and product development for the biopharmaceutical industry, today announced the hiring of Christine Morris and Jay Smith, two e-clinical and life sciences veterans, to its leadership team.
Christine Morris has been named Executive Director for TransPerfect Life Sciences Solutions, and she will lead strategy and operations for the company’s Trial Interactive product as well as for the integrated solutions that incorporate both technology and services that the company offers. Christine brings more than 20 years of consulting, product, leadership, and management experience from companies including PPD, Quintiles, Salix Pharmaceuticals, and most recently, Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI).
“What I love about our solutions is that they were designed by clinical research professionals for clinical research professionals,” said Christine Morris. “Pair those products and service offerings with an amazing group of people and you’ve got a recipe for success. I’ve seen the industry from a number of perspectives—software specialist, consultant, corporate, non-profit/academia—and it’s clear to me that TransPerfect’s offering is something special that can have a broad impact across all parts of the industry.”
Jay Smith has joined TransPerfect as Senior Director, Product Management for Trial Interactive, and he has over 25 years of product management, consulting, and engineering experience in the life sciences industry. Jay has extensive experience in bringing cloud-based enterprise solutions to market with companies that include Apogy, Cureatr, Medidata, and Thomson Reuters.
“Life sciences technology is about so much more than just going paperless. While global eTMF adoption continues to rise, the industry is also heading toward unifying systems across multiple areas to increase transparency, control, and collaboration,” commented Jay Smith. “Trial Interactive is a versatile and powerful platform that will continue to broaden its impact, and I look forward to helping lead the next steps in assisting our clients with the simplification of their product development lifecycles.”
Michael Smyth, General Manager of TransPerfect Life Sciences Solutions, welcomed both new additions, “Christine and Jay have an incredible amount of industry expertise between them, and having them join the team is a natural next step for a product whose development has always been led by clinical professionals. Trial Interactive is designed to increase efficiency for our customers by using innovative technology combined with specialized services, and both Christine and Jay will help immeasurably as we shape the future. We are thrilled to welcome them to the team.”
