Robin Eckert

“You have to forgive yourself and not expect perfection” – Robin Eckert

In this episode, I had the privilege to talk to Robin Eckert.

Robin is an engineer by training who later transitioned into clinical safety and clinical trial management.

She is a very accomplished individual who has led complex structural heart medical device trials. Robin is also one of the most creative individuals in the clinical research space.

If you’re a gal (or a guy) wanting to transition into clinical research or change roles at your current company, Robin will inspire you with her personal story.

We wrap up our discussion with top-notch resources in the interventional cardiology space.

I hope you enjoy this interview with Robin as much as I did.
