Women's Month: An interview with Heather Wells
Heather Wells started in the industry as the one and only Clinical Data Manager in Bayer (UK) within three years, she was managing a team of 19 Data Managers including CRF Design staff and programmers. Then, she took maternity leave and the company restructured; she was “pushed” into a quality role for the biometrics team and ended up thoroughly enjoying what had felt like an enforced move. Son number two came along - and yes - there was another reorganisation! This gave her the opportunity to learn all about the clinical trials side of quality.
As the boys grew, Heather wanted to enjoy time with them and therefore became a part-time mother and consultant. The variety and the challenges she faced and the experience she gained made this a very special time; Heather remembered clients asking her to audit sales and marketing teams and translation companies. Her response was always – 'I have never performed that type of audit before are you sure?!' – well clearly, they were as she expanded her skill set.
Heather also lead a small CRO to obtain ISO 9001 accreditation on the first attempt. She also had the challenge of preparing and hosting a couple of MHRA Inspections. As the boys became young men, she saw a permanent role close to home and was fortunate to enjoy the challenges of working for small biotech companies building and managing the quality systems and still learning, this time on the manufacturing side of the business, all the way through to helping to review and check the BLA. She then decided to move back into the CRO world that she had enjoyed as a consultant and there are still new challenges to discover and enjoy.

This is illustrated with an example of the sleep medication Zolpidem which slows down drug metabolism in women, where a study conducted in 2013, found that women who took the recommended dose were found asleep during activities such as driving.
