Along with the many administrative responsibilities of a research director, Mark maintains robust communication and information exchange between the clinical trial investigators and the research teams at Rocky Mountain Diabetes Center.
After Graduating from the pharmacy program at Idaho State University in 1999, Mark worked as a clinical and out-patient pharmacist for Pocatello Regional Medical Center. He then worked as a consulting pharmacist for 12 nursing homes in southern Idaho. Mark then took a position working at Rite Aid as a pharmacist where he worked for nearly six years before joining Rocky Mountain Diabetes Center. During his time at Rite Aid, Mark was selected to be one of the pharmacists to complete the Pharmacy Partners in Diabetes Care Program which included extensive education and training in the treatment of diabetes and associated complications.
As a Certified Clinical Research Professional (CCRP), Mark is uniquely qualified to manage and execute clinical research projects that are essential to the progress of diabetes treatment.

With the strict standards and regulatory requirements of the FDA and other agencies, Mark has implemented strict standard operating procedures (SOPs), an extensive quality assurance (QA) program and comprehensive training programs for all research department personnel. By doing so, this insures an optimal and efficient clinical research facility that is able to handle the most demanding clinical trials.
Mark has also served on several advisory boards for Eli Lilly helping to make protocol development more efficient. His involvement has helped improve data collection and further the development and improvements of electronic diaries for subject use. Mark also works very closely with the diabetes and endocrinology specialists, Dr. Carl Vance, Dr. David Lilijenquist and Dr. Joshua Smith in conducting clinical trials. Mark’s meticulous work with the entire clinical research staff ensures the highest caliber of clinical research studies available in the United States and around the world.

His greatest joy is in helping people who want to succeed and improve their health and lifestyle. He continually strives to find ways to make the research process more efficient and more enjoyable for all involved.
