NeuroVive is currently in a strong growth phase with several international clinical studies and promising drug candidates in pre-clinical development. This means that the company expects the high level of activity in clinical trials to continue over the coming years. Accordingly, NeuroVive’s management has decided to recruit Gunilla Lindgren to the position as clinical trial manager. Gunilla will be responsible for ensuring the efficiency and high quality of clinical trials within the timeframes and budgets of NeuroVive’s projects.

“This recruitment enables NeuroVive to continue its current expansion phase and to ensure the high quality of its current and future clinical trials. Gunilla Lindgren’s experience from major international companies will be extremely valuable in this process, and I’m delighted to welcome her to NeuroVive,” commented Jan Nilsson, NeuroVive’s COO.
“It’s exciting and challenging to be participating in running even more effective and scalable clinical trials in an innovative and expansive company like NeuroVive. I think I’ll fit in well in this process, as I’ll be able to combine my experience of larger companies with NeuroVive’s strong drive,” commented Gunilla Lindgren.
