Ryan Overcash, PhD, Promoted to Principal Clinical Research Scientist

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC: 23 September 2020 – In March 2020, Ryan Overcash, PhD, was promoted to the position of Principal Clinical Research Scientist at Impact Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. (IMPACT).

Ryan joined IMPACT in March of 2016 as a Clinical Research Scientist and started off managing a large narrative project and an IND safety reporting project; he then transitioned to managing a medical writing project for one of our clients. In addition to his project management roles, Ryan continues to actively write various regulatory documents, including IND modules, protocols, and CSRs, and he consistently develops excellent rapport with his teams. As one of our senior reviewers, he has taken some of our newer writers through their first protocol and CSR projects, receiving rave feedback on his ability to both mentor and review.

Most recently, Ryan became the Head of the Medical Writing Fellowship Program at IMPACT. Ryan headed up the search and interviews for the new medical writing fellowship class, identifying three excellent fellows who began in early April 2020. In his role as Head of the Medical Writing Fellowship Program, Ryan shows leadership and maturity, and he has quickly incorporated himself into the management team.

“Anyone who has been lucky enough to work with Ryan knows that his easy going attitude, patience on difficult projects, sense of humor, in addition to his scientific ability, make him a great asset to IMPACT,” said Chrissy Williams, IMPACT Associate Director of Medical Writing and Submission Management.  “From INDs, protocols, Investigator Brochures, to CSRs, Ryan has shown great adaptability, jumping in to finish projects that are partially complete, effectively managing additional drafts, and winning over difficult teams, all while maintaining an open door for people to drop in and ask questions. Ryan is a team player in the truest sense, and IMPACT is lucky to have him as part of the team!”

Tim Garver, Executive Vice President and COO at IMPACT, comments, “As the Head of the Medical Writing Fellowship Program, Ryan has served as an exceptional mentor and advisor to our Fellows. Throughout the entire process of recruitment, interviews, onboarding, and training, Ryan has successfully led our Fellows through each step with a willingness to share his skills, knowledge, and expertise. His enthusiasm for our Fellowship Program is clear, and I’m looking forward to seeing our current class flourish and the upcoming year’s class thrive under his continued leadership.”

IMPACT is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) located in Research Triangle Park, NC. Our team consists of drug development professionals who specialize in medical writing and quality control, drug development consulting, regulatory affairs, regulatory operations, and program management.
