Success Story: Sr. Medical Director, Clinical-Stage Biopharmaceutical Company

The Steely Group partners with small, growing biotechs and pharmaceutical companies to provide customized staffing solutions in such key areas as clinical operations, data management, medical writing, pharmacovigilance, project management and regulatory affairs. Here’s one of our success stories:


Senior Medical Director, Clinical-Stage Biopharmaceutical Company

Our client, a small CNS biopharmaceutical company in Cambridge, sought our expertise in hiring a Medical Director to oversee the direction, planning and execution of clinical trials for its portfolio of novel drug candidates.

Partnering with the Vice President, Medical Science, we learned that their team had been working against the clock on this critical hire — top-line results from an impending Phase I trial were planned for the second half of the year. A strong candidate with the right mix of drug development experience, therapeutic focus, and board certification needed to be identified quickly if the program was to stay on track and meet planning milestones.

Within two weeks, The Steely Group provided a board-certified Behavioral Neurologist with 10 years of progressive experience leading clinical trials and specializing in early/late phase clinical drug development programs for multiple neurologic diseases.

Just as our client’s IND was getting approved, our candidate was named Senior Medical Director and charged with moving the company’s lead compound from discovery to the clinic. Timing of this critical hire proved optimal. Our candidate was able to evaluate the compound, design the Phase I clinical trial, evaluate disease states, and analyze the compound’s feasibility and future.
