Prior to joining Altasciences, Ingrid provided consulting services for early stage CROs and has successfully implemented company-wide management systems, including financial, client services, and operational KPIs in a number of organizations.

When she is not busy running clinical studies, Ingrid enjoys spending time with her family, spoiling her cats and dog, and listening to all genres of music, especially those recorded by her daughter!

"One of the key reasons sponsors choose to collaborate with Altasciences on their drug development outsourcing strategy is our understanding of the importance and value of patient-centric innovations. We swiftly recruit and qualify patients, and provide them with an exceptionally pleasant experience during their time with us, all of which serves to facilitate and accelerate the conduct of our clients’ inpatient and outpatient trials.” – Ingrid Holmes
