Forty for 40: Romiya Barry, MS-Clinical Investigation ’07
Romiya Barry has had a passion for science and medicine for as long as she can remember.
After earning a bachelor’s degree in biology and biotechnology from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Barry began her career in research and development. She recognized her true calling was to guide scientists through industry regulations to successfully launch new medical products and assist clinicians looking to bring the interventions to their patients.
Focusing on improvements to trial operations and management, Barry has provided oversight to several global studies. Her work has supported developing medical devices for patients with critical care health issues, chronic diseases such as HIV infection and Type 2 diabetes, and thrombotic and bleeding disorders.
“Clinical research marries my interest in science and technology,” said Barry, who is currently pursuing a PhD in translational health sciences from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
