The mission of the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) includes offering educational resources, training, and support for investigators and research staff.  We have invited highly experienced monitor, Joann Wu, PhD, to provide you with a training on Thinking like a Monitor, and its importance to identify and correct mistakes and deficiencies for Protection of human subjects, trial and data integrity.


At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to:

  • Anticipate potential quality and compliance issues in your day-to-day work
  • Better understand commonly seen issues from monitoring visits
  • Concentrate on issues that matter in being your own monitor
  • Identify time points during study development (besides monitor visits), where special attention to quality and compliance is advantageous.
  • Understand the approach of risk-based quality management

Attendance is open to all research staff

About the Instructor:

Joann Wu, PhD, came from a multi-disciplinary engineering background with a B.S. from Massachusetts institute of Technology and a PhD in Integrated science and engineering (Biochemistry and Electrical engineering) from National University of Singapore.  Often found daydreaming about efficiency and compliance, she is almost obsessed with bringing medical advances to people at low-cost and faster. She first became interested in clinical research because of the fulfilling patient interactions she had as a clinical research coordinator at Kaiser Permanente where she worked on various therapeutic areas in infectious disease, cardiology, surgery, orthopedics, gynecology, and gastroenterology. After joining SCCR as Quality and Compliance Associate, and learning more about regulations and quality management with the SCCR Q&C team, she is now enthusiastically helping colleagues engineer clinical study processes that are both compliant and humanly possible.
