Meet Nick

Tell us about yourself, your position, background, motivations.

I’m a scientist at heart, I love learning about the world around me.  My curiosity in science led me to study biology in undergrad at Allegheny College.  I happened to discover Clinical Operations at a small biotech in Cambridge, MA and found the combination of science and business the perfect role for me.  I completed a Master of Public Heath in biostatistics & epidemiology at Tufts University while working full-time.  I’ve spent the past 15 years working in Clinical Operations which entails working with an internal cross-functional team, clinical sites, CROs, and vendors to oversee the operations of clinical trials.  I’ve found my career in clinical development very rewarding as it allows me the opportunity to apply science to improve patients’ lives.  I currently work as a Director of Clinical Operations at Crinetics and oversee multiple global late-stage studies for our lead molecule, paltusotine.
