Seascape Clinical: Data has a New View with Monica Roy


Monica Roy is the co-founder and CEO of Seascape Clinical, a Northern California-based brand offering cloud-based clinical trial management software to help research teams handle clinical trial data more effectively. Monica has worked in the clinical operations space for over thirteen years and believes that by keeping track of clinical trial information, teams can spend more time developing the creative and strategic aspects of their work. In addition to her work at Seascape Clinical, Monica has worked with companies including Bioclinica (Synarc), Clovis Oncology, Gilead Sciences, Myovant Sciences, and AbbVie, in topic areas such as liver disease, women's health, and oncology.


Today, Monica joins me to discuss Seascape Clinical's niche in the clinical research industry and her journey to launching the brand. She shares her insights into clinical trial management systems, the gap she saw in the clinical research space regarding data management, and how Seascape Clinical meets this need. Monica also highlights the uncertainty that can arise along the entrepreneurial journey and the importance of embracing unforeseen challenges.




“The things that you take for granted... those are clear indicators of the direction that you should be going in.” - Monica Roy
