Tarquin Scadding-Hunt, CEO of mdgroup, said: “Steph’s experience working on the site and sponsor side of clinical research, combined with 16 years as a registered nurse, eight years as a clinical research trainer and her business sense, gives her the ability to move Seacole Health forward as a business that uniquely meets the changing needs of the post-COVID healthcare workforce.”

Katz said: “I am excited to bring my love of nursing and clinical research together in service of our mission to provide remarkable patient experiences in the decentralised trial space.

“I am passionate about ensuring we honour our participants by collecting the highest-quality data. They give of themselves for the betterment of humankind and we owe it to them to make sure we translate their experience as accurately as possible.”
