Annelie has over 10 years of experience as a registered nurse in intensive care working with both children and adults, as well as working in clinical research for several years. She has worked as a Study Coordinator for Phase I-IV studies, and a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) in cardiovascular and oncology studies.
Have you ever saved someone’s life?
Yes, or at least taken part in saving lives several times at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
What’s something someone would never guess about you?
That I completed a two-year writing course at a residential college for adult education, wrote four book manuscripts, and even a theatre play manuscript.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance of winning a medal for?
Reading a book the fastest would be my type of sport. I often finish a book within hours and I’m incredibly grateful that the library exists so I can borrow lots of books!
Why did you decide to do the work you are doing now?
I’ve always been interested in research and loved doing my Master’s and Bachelor’s thesis. This kind of work challenges me, and no day is like another. As a CRA you often come across things that need different types of problem solving, which I enjoy. Starting up a clinical study site, coordinating, and communicating with different teams is fun. I enjoy working as a team, with both sites and sponsors.
