Working in clinical research combines skills from both the retail and health system pharmacy spaces, as well as other, more unique skillsets, according to research pharmacist Brian Wortz, PharmD, of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, in an interview with Pharmacy Times.

All pharmacists have responsibilities around inventory, storage, and other day-to-day concerns, but Wortz said research pharmacists also must view these issues through the lens of protocol rules established by the trial sponsors. They must also consider emerging safety concerns or adverse effects that were previously unknown in the drugs they are researching.
