Anders Lindquist received his Masters of Science in Clinical Research Administration in 2008 from Eastern Michigan University after completing a certificate program in Clinical Research Administration. During this time he continued to work as an orthodontic assistant and Research Assistant on the Michigan Growth Study in Ann Arbor Michigan.

In 2007, he started working at The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center as Data Manager. This sparked his passion for Oncology clinical trial research and especially life threatening research. In 2008 he moved to Dublin, Ohio where he and his wife started their family. His daughter Elin age 6, and son Henry age 4 are his drive to help improve clinical research for future generations. Anders believes that the challenges we face today with our current drug therapies should not be left for future generations to fix.

As a Senior Clinical Research Coordinator at Ohio State University he developed an acquired taste for facilitating subsite clinical trials at multiple large institutions. Electronic data capture was his next focus as a research consultant before working at a major CRO as a Feasibility Analyst. As a subject mater expert in feasibility, he provided executive therapeutic experts with data and supporting text for site identification and forecasting the probability of success for meeting enrollment goals. Anders experiences give him a unique prospective on running successful clinical trials.

In 2015 he founded ZTrials™ a Site Service Organization, and currently serves as CEO and Principle Consultant. ZTrials™ helps clinical research sites create customized solutions for identifying new studies, contract support, training and education, and centralized services. His centralized approach provides more efficient and effective trial management solutions. This is achieved by leveraging shared resources among clinical research site network members. He currently serves as the President of  the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of ACRP.

Outside of his work life he enjoys running ultra marathons, and currently training for his first 100 mile ultra: On September 17 2016 he will be doing his first 24 hour run. His first ultra was the Badwater Cape Fear 50K on Bald Head Island, NC in 2015. Since then he has also completed the Badwater Cape Fear 51.4 mile race in 2016. He tells people, “I’m just like Forrest Gump: I just keep running!” Tennis and golf are also guilty pleasures, and spending time with his family on vacations are his most treasured moments.
