Catrin Moore is our Head of Operations.

Catrin joined ERGO in 2015 at the height of the group's response to the Ebola epidemic to support the operational activities of the RAPIDE clinical trial. Catrin has a background in microbiology diagnosis and research. She previously worked in Laos and Cambodia for six years building the microbiology capacity in the countries while managing the diagnostic and research laboratories as the Director for Laboratory Research. Her current position integrates Catrin's interest in science and microbiology together with a rapid response to provide quality care to patients enrolled in our clinical trials based in multiple countries and sites.

Catrin recently represented the group on the Royal Society of Biology stand at the New Scientist Live.
