Profile: An interview with Laura Carolina Collada Ali: On the peculiarities of working for independent research organisations

Abstract

Laura C Collada Ali wears different hats: she is a medical writer plus a medical translator, and has extensive experience delivering multilingual authoring and translation services across a wide range of independent research organisations. She is a translator by education, yet has worked for many years in the fields of independent clinical research, regulatory affairs, and logistics. Based on her background, she has a large portfolio of services to offer: scientific writing and translation, proofreading, regulatory writing, medical communications writing, project management, and training. Additionally, she served as Public Relations (PR) officer for EMWA from May 2013 to May 2015. In this profile, we turn to Laura to better understand the peculiarities of working for independent research organisations.
