Epileptologist - Central Reader Clinical Trials
|Position:||Epileptologist Central Reader|
Lifelines Neuro Company’s Clinical Trials Division is offering contract positions for highly-qualified adult, pediatric and neonatal epileptologists to act as Central Readers for existing and upcoming clinical trial projects.
Lifelines Neuro Clinical Trials division delivers expert turnkey service for pharmaceutical, therapeutic devices, and other research trials around the globe requiring EEG protocol. With extensive neurodiagnostic experience, a dedicated support staff, and widespread access to physicians and registered EEG technologists, we are the global leader in cloud-based EEG for clinical trials requiring brain monitoring.

The reports will be done according to the protocol outlined by the sponsor. It is expected that the Central Reader be able to interpret and provide a report within 72 hours of assignment.
Clinical research studies are ongoing but can be intermittent in nature. The length of the EEG varies greatly and can range from the typical 20-minute recording to 120+ hours in length. Video may or may not be present based on the study protocol. EEGs may be performed on several types/manufacturer’s equipment with review completed via Persyst, Stratus EEG, or Lifelines Neuro’s Rendr Platform.
Lifelines Neuro Company’s core Clinical Trial services include Video-EEG recording systems coupled to highly secure cloud-based servers. We provide live, on-line technical oversight of all recordings performed by registered EEG technologists, custom EEG consumable packages, custom reporting, and project management as well as full-blinded central review services. The registered EEG techs also perform review and annotate the data according to protocol, prior to assigning it to the Central Reader.
