Nancy Woody

Senior Project Manager

With almost a decade of project management experience under her belt, Ms. Nancy Woody provides Rho with proven leadership to our cross-functional teams. And while Ms. Woody has worked in a wide variety of indications, her primary focus lies in rare disease (cystic fibrosis), neurology and analgesia (Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, spine pain, women’s pain, etc.).

She has supported and led Phase 1 through 4 global and regional trials and served as the Project Lead on a highly-complex first-in-human cystic fibrosis study. She has also led over 11 clinical trials, the majority of them global studies with upwards of 18 countries and up to 5,000 patients.

Fully utilizing her background in intercultural training and conflict resolution, Ms. Woody is well-suited for her day-to-day work in clinical trials and in her role as transition lead on several rescue studies – tasked with aligning old and new processes and properly documenting the handovers in the Trial Master Files.

Ms. Woody is a certified Project Management Professional and received her Master’s degree in Intercultural Relations from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.

Why clinical research?

“A good friend of mine would frequently tell me that she thought I would do well in this industry. One day the opportunity presented itself to me and I haven’t turned back since. I love that I learn something new every single day and work with smart and passionate people. I never get bored and it is an amazing feeling to be part of a community focused on helping people. I might not necessarily see the impact of my work on a daily basis, but I know that it has and will change people’s lives.”

This is what drives Nancy:

“My parents have always modeled a strong work ethic, so the drive is certainly deeply-rooted within me. This work is so exciting, so humbling, so rewarding and worthwhile … just knowing that my work has the potential to give people better quality of life and even potentially cure them of an illness makes all the hard work completely worth it.”
