A wealth of staff experienced in pharmaceutical product development

Hello. My name is Sunghoon Ahn. I am currently working at Linical headquarters in Osaka. I worked for four years as a clinical trial monitor in my home country, South Korea, before coming to work at Linical in April 2013. Since I joined Linical, as a CRO monitor in Japan, I have experienced everything from selecting facilities to completing clinical trials, and I have worked on both Japan-only trials as well as global studies. At the moment, I’m serving as Lead CRA on global studies, as well as regional Project Manager for global studies, striving hard to make our trials a success.
As a CRA in Japan, I have a deep understanding of what pharmaceutical companies require, how to conduct clinical trials at Japanese facilities and how to communicate effectively here. With all my experience and understanding of Japanese business culture, I can communicate very closely with Japanese pharmaceutical companies. My main area of experience is oncology, and I am also in charge of clinical trials for the latest immunotherapy drugs. I have also developed experience in other areas, including immunology, dermatology, and urology. At the same time, I support Korean pharmaceutical companies entering the Japanese market. There are many people at Linical who are experienced in pharmaceutical product development, so I’m confident that we can provide support that will satisfy even overseas pharmaceutical companies who wish to conduct clinical trials in Japan.
If you are thinking about implementing a Japan-led global study, or conducting a clinical trial in Japan, please feel free to consult with us.
