Meet Our Team
LeRoy Reynolds, RPh
Site Director/Clinical Operations Officer
With 29+ years of Pharmaceutical Experience, I consider myself a veteran in Clinical Research affairs. Before managing operations here at SFCRI, I worked 29+ years as the Regional Research Manager for the Southeastern United States for Eli Lilly and Company.
My responsibilities encompassed Sales & Marketing and Medical & Clinical Operations. They tasked me with providing operational expertise to customers through ownership of the site performance from site selection through site closeout. I Identified and selected high performing investigator sites that regularly executed trials with high quality and cost-effective speeds, and developed and managed institutional and key investigator relationships within my region, by serving as the primary interface between Lilly, the investigator, and the vendor representatives to ensure a successful Clinical Trial.
These skills are now used to ensure that South Florida Clinical Research Institute is successful in the following key areas:
Business Management – ensuring timely data delivery and integrity alongside meeting clinical trial milestones for our sponsor partner.
Business Development – screen, test and develop investigators for clinical trial participation.
Communication/Information Management- implement technology to ensure good quality data to the CRO/Sponsor.
Compliance – hold all site personnel accountable for inspection readiness throughout the trial and to support regulatory inspections.
