Maria Craze

Executive Director- Global Data Operations: Merck Sharp & Dhome Inc. (MSD)

I have been in the field of Pharmaceutical Clinical Data Management for 17 years. My experience spans from the mail room and data entry/data review to project manager and study designer through process owner/SME, management and now executive leadership. I have years of experience as a traditional data manager, and I myself have had to manage change from a CDM perspective as the industry moved from paper based CDM to electronic. As a CDM subject matter expert I have had great opportunities to explore emerging technologies, risk based approaches as well as automation trends. I have had experience developing and authoring CDM process, training plans and materials for the ever growing CDM groups forming. I have also had the pleasure of training, mentoring and coaching CDMs of multiple skill levels over the last decade. My experience as a Organization Leader at MSD in the area of CDM has afforded me vast and broad opportunities to interact with technology vendors and CROs to be part of shaping the future. Additionally I serve on the board of a global CDM society whose main mission is also to provide leadership, guidance and support for the ever changing CDM community.
