Spotlight Interview with Richard Gleeson, Head of Clinical and R&D Technology, Cerevel Therapeutics


Richard Gleeson, Head of Clinical and R&D Technology, Cerevel Therapeutics



What do you hope attendees will gain at your webinar? 

Ideally, the attendees will see from the example of Cerevel’s implementation of elluminate some approaches and models they can utilize to increase their use of data for better decision making.

What discussions do you look forward to having with the attendees? 

It is always great to have people challenge your assumptions and strategies.  There is a balance of benefit and risk with all change, so I am looking forward to explaining how we have implemented our data environment and why we think it was the best approach for Cerevel.

What do you enjoy most about your role? 

I get to work with really smart people who have interesting technology challenges.  In a startup, you wear many hats, and it has been fun to work on so many parts of the company.

How did you get into the industry? 

I started a web design firm back in the ’90s and had a CRO as a customer.  They came to us and wanted to conduct their trials using the web, which led us to found DataLabs, an early EDC vendor.

Where is your favourite place in the world and why? 

My favorite thing to do is ride my bike, and I feel fortunate to live in a country with such great trails.  Enjoying a mid-ride Iced Coffee at Homestead Coffee Roasters in Upper Black Eddie, PA, along the Delaware Canal Path is heaven to me.
