Aide CastroAide Castro Director, Clinical Operations

My Focus and Background

I am responsible for providing operational leadership to enable the delivery of Calico's clinical development portfolio. This includes leading the clinical development operations team in building and implementing the processes and infrastructure to successfully execute our clinical programs. Overall, my team and I are accountable for operational planning, oversight and delivery of the clinical stage programs while ensuring data quality and compliance with our standard operating procedures, FDA regulations and ICH Good Clinical Practices guidelines.

Prior to Calico, I held roles of increasing responsibility in clinical trial and program execution. This included 11 years at Genentech and, prior to that, 3 years at Stanford Medical School. Throughout this time, I focused my interests on early clinical development while working across numerous therapeutic areas including Infectious Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Neurology and Oncology.
