I joined Metrum Research Group in the Fall of 2022 as a research scientist in PKPD, driven by a passion for modeling and simulation analyses of clinical trial data. My journey into this field was profoundly shaped by my experiences during a post-doc at a nonprofit organization, where I had the chance to collaborate closely with patient advocacy groups in the rare disease community. Their unwavering determination and resilience have inspired me to continue my work towards finding cures and creating innovative drug development solutions. In honor of Rare Disease Day, I am grateful to have the opportunity to share my journey of fruitful collaboration that has shaped my perspective.
Eric Anderson has been an invaluable member of the MetrumRG team since 2017. Over the years, has contributed a practical and dedicated approach to skillfully navigating the complexities of data.
Eric began his career in the insurance industry as an actuarial analyst. His experience in analyzing insurance data and modeling risk put him in a position to smoothly transition into the field of model-informed drug development at MetrumRG. In his current role, Eric assembles clinical trial data into model-ready datasets, creates visualizations (including interactive dashboards) to help describe data, and develops tools to help facilitate these and other modeling project tasks.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I feel compelled to share my personal journey. Even though I'm not one to seek attention, this is a story that needs to be told.

Their experiences taught me an invaluable lesson: breast cancer awareness is not just about detecting lumps; it's about paying attention to any changes in your breasts – a message that applies to both women and men.
