The team will support translating the huge volume of clinical information into meaningful insights for the organisation, further strengthening our ability to solve complex business problems and serve patients with an innovative data-driven approach. I am excited to be a part of this journey with AstraZeneca, establishing an effective workforce & innovation centre to handle all data-related aspects of clinical trials with a lean mindset.”
