Marieke Cajal, Ph.D.
Research Development Director, Bioclinica Research

Dr. Marieke Cajal is the Research Development Director at Bioclinica Research part of a leading research site network in Neurodegenerative Diseases.

Dr. Cajal began working as an academic researcher in 2008, and has since expanded her experience to all phases of clinical trials within numerous therapeutic areas.

Since joining Compass Research in 2015 (acquired by Bioclinica),, she has successfully led patient recruitment in Central Nervous System trials employing a community outreach program to raise awareness of disease and clinical trials. She maintains strong relations with sponsors, physicians, healthcare organizations, and patient advocacy groups.

Dr. Cajal earned a doctorate in Neurosciences from Sorbonne Paris Cité while conducting research on brain development for the French National Centre for Scientific Research. Additionally she has a Master’s in Genetics from Paris Diderot University and a Bachelor’s from Evry University. Dr. Cajal is a member of The Alzheimer's Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART).


Considering the large number of individuals affected by Alzheimer's disease (AD) or Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), you might expect fast enrollment into clinical trials. The reality is quite different. Sponsors of clinical trials face several obstacles: 1) Patients are underdiagnosed. 2) Patients have a limited knowledge of clinical trials and some misconceptions.
