program, Graciela Zapata, the Clinical Site Director at the Rockville, Maryland site, stated: “As one of
Meridian’s newer sites, it [is] important forme to staff our team with individuals that have a well-rounded
education and background in the clinical research triallifecycle, its processes and procedures. During her
internship, Juliana displayed an impressive level of knowledge and confidence in her skills and abilities. It
was difficult to tell her apart fromthe other coordinators that hadmore experience in the position. She

her a position here at Meridian Clinical Research – Rockville, Maryland.”
