Mr Chris Hayward

Quality Assurance Manager

Peninsula Medical School (Faculty of Health: Medicine, Dentistry and Human Sciences)

Role

Chris began working in clinical trials in 2000, working for a commercial Clinical Research Organisation managing Phase I/II trials of Investigational Medicinal Products.  

In 2008 he joined a team at Plymouth University, coordinating the non-commercial CUPID trial (ISRCTN62942668), before moving into the UKCRC-registered Peninsula Clinical Trials Unit at Plymouth University (PenCTU) in 2010.  At PenCTU, Chris managed a variety of trials including Phase III CTIMPs, non-CTIMPs, pilot trials, feasibility studies and trials of complex interventions.  

After a brief spell working for University of Exeter, Chris re-joined PenCTU as Quality Assurance Manager in January 2017.

Chris is experienced in the practical, risk-based application of GCP standards and regulatory requirements and has prepared for and participated in several regulatory inspections.
