In early 2020, when the Government declared COVID-19 a pandemic, I was working as the Director of Operations for a multi-state Site Management Organization. Two of the final projects that I was overseeing involved the testing of the cobas® SARS-CoV-2 and Abbott ID Now® RT-PCR technologies and early phase trials of Remdesivir.
On September 8, 2020, I accepted a new position as Regional Director with a company named Ventavia Research Group. My main responsibility was to oversee the conduct of Pfizer's Phase 3 Covid-19 mRNA "vaccine" trial at several sites locations in Texas.
Part of my responsibility was to ensure the rights, safety, and welfare of the people volunteering to be in the study was protected, and that the information collected from each of them was supported by the highest data integrity standards.
In all of my years of experience I have never seen research conducted by a site, a contractor, or a pharmaceutical sponsor that scared me, until then. What I documented and reported to my employer and to Pfizer during my internal audit was so egregious that I knew I had to act. I had a responsibility to make sure that the patients were protected and ensure that the tainted data was not used in any safety and efficacy analyses.
On September 25, 2020, I submitted a formal complaint to FDA and within hours, I was fired.
