)-- “It’s important we take the time to recognize, celebrate and thank the people who perform ethical and responsible clinical research,” said Brendon Bourg, QPS Bio-Kinetics’ Vice President.
Kayce Morton, a principal investigator at the Springfield, Missouri facility, began her career in clinical research as a participant at QPS Bio-Kinetic in the late 90s, gaining employment there as a phlebotomist while attending college at Drury University.
She continued her employment throughout her educational career serving as a clinical research technician while in medical school. Today, Morton works alongside many of the veteran researchers she first met as a participant.
“It gives me peace to know many pharmaceutical companies are here to make a difference, not just to make money,” explains Morton. “They support research and seek FDA approval for drugs to help prove their worth.”
Bourg shares his appreciation for Morton’s dedication to the organization, and adds, “I am grateful for the role each of us has in clinical research, and for our potential as an organization to significantly change lives.”
In addition to her position as an investigator at QPS Bio-Kinetic, Morton is a practicing pediatric hospitalist and is involved in the community with various organizations.
To raise awareness for Clinical Trials’ Day, QPS Bio-Kinetic recognizes Morton for her contribution and invites all of its employees to wear blue to work to help publicize the importance of clinical research.
