What People Are Saying about Katrina Rogers

VMRD did have success with the viral transport media! We have a few new products that we’re working on, but none under the FDA umbrella. If we delve into that market again or other new territories, we will happily reach out to you. I appreciate the great assistance with all the FDA/medical device questions/help we needed!

Katrina Rogers is an outstanding technical director for DMPK. I have worked with her over the last 6 years and during that time have been privileged to see her make the transition from being a top-notch manager to a very effective and influential technical director. She has established herself as an important member of our Pharmacology technical directors’ team over this last year through her conscientious efforts. Utilizing her understanding of Operations, Katrina has expanded her role as technical director to include a more global view of our Customers’ overall needs. This has greatly empowered her to proactively seek out solutions for her Clients and colleagues.
