Consultant Profile


Gloria Crispino has 25 years of experience in biostatistics and mathematical biology both in academia and industry, in Europe and the USA, leading international groups of scientists, including biostatisticians, mathematicians, bioinformaticians, data managers, health economists, clinicians and programmers, in supporting the methodological and biostatistical needs of health research. Gloria is the CEO and Director of Biostatistics at StatisticaMedica Ltd, a European clinical research organization based in Dublin, specialising in biostatistics and data management of clinical trials in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. Gloria's key professional interests are: o Addressing the challenges in the application of rigorous and robust biostatistics in translational health research, in the continuum space from bench to bedside to population health. o Leading the design of clinical and pre-clinical trials to maximise the use and quality of the data collected, minimize patients’ effort and reduce time and costs of trials. o Contribute to the development of innovative approaches to the modelling and simulation of clinical data that can be used to enhance the understanding of treatment efficacy and safety (pharmaceutical and medical device) and to support evidence-based decisions. The interaction between academia and industry and the interoperable use of biostatistics and mathematical modelling have provided me with the opportunity to develop a unique ability to synergistically merge cutting-edge knowledge with the highest regulatory standards and to provide strategic knowledge-transfer of advanced methods for a variety of applications including innovative study design, drug/medical device/diagnostic commercialization and policy for health practices.
