Mobius Medical is proudly owned and operated by Suzanne Williams, Stefan Czyniewski and Richard Brookes. Meeting initially at Ventracor in 2005, working together on LVAD clinical trials, Suzanne and Stefan decided to team up and create a consultancy clinical trials management business.
Mobius Medical was founded in 2008 and, for a number of years, enjoyed moderate organic growth stemming from a handful of clients’ word of mouth recommendations and repeat business. Mobius’ clinical trials management of largely medical devices was to undergo expansion to include trials with other therapeutics, and our service offering grew with a full suite of electronic tools such as data capture, reported outcomes, randomisation and trial master file when Richard joined Mobius as a third owner in 2014. With his software/finance background, Richard systemised the company’s operating systems for upward growth, and created our EDC arm. Recognition of some of Richard’s finest work is ISO 9001 certification (since 2015) for our web-based quality management system.
Mobius quickly evolved into a full service CRO and supports over 30 studies at any given time. They say a company is only as good as its people and Mobius is teeming with good people. The group comprises high achievers in the extreme - energetic, service-focused, highly qualified professionals who work with passion, foresight, and motivation to create a difference in the lives of people who need therapeutic goods.
Stefan is a founding member of Mobius Medical and brings with him a sound knowledge and experience of clinical trial management and regulatory report submission requirements required for device approval. His expertise includes clinical trial design, management and reporting, database design, project management and regulatory reporting.
Graduating from the University of Sydney, Stefan initially worked as a research assistant for an orthopaedic surgeon. In 2003 he joined the clinical research team at Fornier Pharma and based at the Clinical Trial Centre at the NHMRC, working in Clinical and Data Management on the FIELD study, a multicentre, international, phase III study.
Stefan moved back into the medical device space in 2006 as a Senior CRA and then Clinical Affairs Manager at Ventracor. He was placed in charge of the clinical dossier for CE Marking of the VentrAssist which was achieved in December 2006.
A graduate of Manchester University (UK), Suzanne joined ICON Clinical Research (UK), as a Clinical Research Associate enjoying exposure to many therapeutic areas within the pharmaceutical clinical trials arena, before heading to Australia to establish ICON’s Sydney office in 1997. Remaining in Australia, Suzanne went on to gain extensive experience of ‘big pharma’ clinical trials management at Searle, Pharmacia, Roche and Pfizer.
In 2003 Suzanne switched focus to medical devices and joined the clinical team at Ventracor assisting with the successful completion of the pivotal trials which enabled the company to obtain the CE Mark of their LVAD device. From there, Suzanne teamed up with other medical devices experts to create Mobius Medical; a boutique CRO now in its eighth year of working with start-up companies and the development of their technologies.
Suzanne is the Clinical Director focusing on liaison with clients and the clinical investigational staff to design, initiate, resource and project manage a wide variety of medical device, pharma. and IVD clinical trials. Armed with a thorough understanding of theoretical and practical aspects of clinical research, Suzanne also offers advice and conducts training programs for clinical research personnel.
Richard joined Mobius Medical as Technical Director and manages the electronic data capture (EDC), clinical trial management systems (CTMS) and clinical data management services business. Richard is also building the platform to deliver the fantastic new online training courses being offered by Mobius Medical.
After developing software early on in the internet/eCommerce boom of the late 90s, Richard founded a company developing enterprise data management tools which was acquired in 2009 by a US software vendor. After his success in the software industry, Richard had an opportunity to utilise his skills in the finance industry where he developed statistical trading models as a portfolio manager for a Sydney-based long short hedge fund.
Richard is now focused on applying his technological skills to build a better breed of clinical trial and data management solutions for the clinical trial industry.
