Neal Surasky, Data Manager at Chesapeake Research

Neal obtained his certification as a Licensed Practical Nurse in 1995 after studying at St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas. He worked in a variety of settings as an LPN for 9 years, when he decided to make a change to clinical research. He started in a small Phase 1 unit, doing predominantly bioequivalence studies, but the research bug had bitten. He immersed himself in learning as much as possible about the industry, and became the supervisor of clinical operations. A short time later, Neal made the move to Chesapeake Research Group in 2005. As one of two primary coordinators, he oversaw many studies, with a focus on analgesics. As he continued to learn and develop, he became the Data Manager for the company, responsible for all data entry and quality assurance. He still serves in that capacity, with the addition of regulatory responsibility and oversight. In 2014, Neal earned his Certified Clinical Research Coordinator credentials. He and his family live in Columbia, Maryland.
