LeRoy Reynolds, RPh
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.
