Somer Hamrick

Founder & CEO

Somer Hamrick, founder and CEO of Channel Clinical, has spent the majority of her 20-year career specializing in leading growth strategies, with the last decade focused on clinical research and drug development from a service perspective. She has served in roles in both public and private sectors across a variety of therapeutic areas. Her work has led her to cross the US, Africa and Asia in support of some of the world’s most challenging epidemics. Additionally, she has been involved in the spin out of a private company from a large, 5000+ person global NGO.

Somer jumped at the opportunity to have a seat at the executive strategy table and saw first-hand the qualities and capabilities that set some entrepreneurs apart in the life science space. In addition, she witnessed the many challenges both clinical trial sponsors and vendors face when conducting business together. Industry standards for business practices were broken, and Somer saw a solution.

The motivation to change those business practices drove Somer to create Channel Clinical, the marketplace for clinical research services. Now, study sponsors can go straight to the source, connecting directly with qualified clinical trial vendors. Vendors have direct access to study sponsors to negotiate rates and contract terms.

Together, we’re transforming the business of conducting clinical research.
