Dr. SASAKI's story

I had worked as a study coordinator in the clinical trials support department since 2007. After having worked as a pharmacist I worked as a study coordinator during the clinical support trials phases I/II/III in cancer patients and ran the ethics committee.  I am also a member of the DIA Japan Operation Team from 2020. I would like to contribute to ATLAS project by collaborating with researchers in Asia to provide effective treatments for cancer patients as soon as possible.
