Gamer, podcaster, clinical trial assistant: the employee behind our new podcast
Galina Pogossovas primary role at Exactis is as a Clinical Trial Assistant (CTA). In this role, Galina assist the clinical operations team in updating and maintaining documentation relating to clinical trials. Research is a driving interest for Galina, something she is passionate about not only in her work, but in her free time as the producer and co-host of her own popular podcast.
“A few years ago, a game called Bloodborne was released by FromSoftware for the PS4. Bloodborne is a Lovecraftian horror game and one of its themes centers around research ethics. Being someone who loves research, as well as cosmic horror, I naturally gravitated toward this game. Long story short, I teamed up with a friend (a researcher who also loves Bloodborne), and we started a podcast talking about this game’s themes soon after it’s release.” said Galina. She and her co-host analyze video games through the lens of their professional experience and knowledge of scientific research. While she has found success in her niche, she notes some challenges, “I think as a small content creator, the hardest part is finding time to make content with few resources. The best part has been building a community and a safe space for a lot of incredible people.”
In this way, Galina has found a way to combine her love of video games (her favorite is Fallout) with her love of research. “I like working in research because I’m making a difference in someone’s life. Even if I’m just a tiny drop in the ocean, I still feel like I’m contributing to something that could make the world a better place.”
We’d like to thank Galina for her hard work not only as a CTA, but as the producer of our new podcast, What’s with RWE?, which is now available on our YouTube channel.
