How long have you been volunteering at CDISC?

Since 2012, when  I joined the CDISC China Coordinating Committee (C3C)

What encouraged you to volunteer your time and expertise with CDISC?

CDISC develops a set of great standards, which can improve and accelerate the clinical trial process, especially with data management, analysis and submission. CDISC is a non-profit organization and all volunteers are working   for the mission in research and development for new drugs.

How did you begin working in clinical research?

In the beginning, I worked as a lecture and researcher in Peking University, but I really wanted to work for a global company, where I could best use my medical knowledge and experience. 

I became a Data Manager at Pfizer.  Then I joined an international IT company as a subject matter expert on EDC and other GXP systems. Currently, I created a CRO company (the first CDISC member in China), which provides data management, EDC set-up, SAS programming and statistical analysis, using CDISC standards throughout the whole service.

What is an achievement you are proud of?

I was the first person in China to apply to become an authorized instructor of ODM and Define-XML standards. I am working very hard to earn this authorization.

What are some of your goals as you continue to volunteer at CDISC?

  • Continue to be an expert on CDISC standards.
  • Serve as a good connection between CDISC and China regulatory authorities.
  • Become an authorized instructor of ODM/Define.xml standards.

Please provide a tip that someone would find helpful in working with CDISC Standards.

  • Guide others.
  • Use CDISC standards in real studies. 
  • Attend as many CDISC-related activities as possible, e.g., webinars, seminars, meetings, conferences
