Christa van Kan

Christa van Kan has more than 20 years of experience in managing clinical trials in a broad range of diseases, including many orphan and paediatric indications. She is one of the co-founders and owners of PSR Orphan Experts. In her role of Team Lead Clinical Execution and hands-on Senior Project Manager, Christa has developed several innovative recruitment strategies for orphan drug trials. “What I love most about my work, is the fact that we’re often in close contact with patient groups, both for recruitment purposes and to use their input to make a clinical trial less burdensome for the patient and their families. I really enjoy finding ad-hoc solutions to all sorts of logistical challenges which often occur in orphan drug trials.”
