Introduction

A Clinical Research Associate (CRA) manages clinical trials and studies related to pharmaceutical and biotechnological products, drugs, and procedures. They oversee recruiting study participants, collecting patient data, creating study documentation and conducting quality assurance audits to ensure study protocols are in order. Clinical Research Associates also compile and finalize reports from long-term clinical trials.

The CRA acts as a liaison between the study’s sponsor CRO (pharmaceutical company) and the clinics (Site) where the study takes place. Because results of a clinical trial must be kept entirely transparent and not influenced by the interests of the sponsor, this is a critical role. A successful CRA will be detail oriented, highly educated, and able to communicate clearly with both sponsor and clinical representatives.
