Lauren Lockhart, BS, Certified Clinical Research Coordinator (CCRC)

Lauren LockhartLauren Lockhart joined FMC Science in 2014 just after our research entity’s inception. In the fall of 2014, Ms. Lockhart earned her Certified Clinical Research Coordinator (CCRC) certification. She also completed her CITI-GCP, IATA, NIH Protection of Human Subjects, OSHA, and HIPAA training and developed FMC Science’s standard operating policies.

Lauren brings a wealth of clinical research experience to FMC Science. She has seven years’ previous experience as a CRC with U.S. Oncology Research (USOR), one of the nation’s largest cancer research centers.

At USOR, Lauren served as clinical research supervisor for the Austin market and directed nine clinical research coordinators. She also personally managed more than 85 clinical trials (phases 1-4) in diverse drug studies relating to breast, GI, genitourinary, lung, lymphatic, hematopoietic, gynecologic, and solid tumor cancers.

However, Lauren is probably most proud that she is an Aggie – a graduate of Texas A&M University in College Station – who awarded her a BS Degree in Biomedical Science in 2007.
