Palmer 2019 Keynote Speaker
Dr. Rose Krial-Victor
"The Reach of the Research Experience"
Dr. Krial-Victor earned her Bachelor’s of Science in psychology, mentored by Dr. Bill Deeds, at Moravian College, then went on to receive her PhD in experimental psychology at New York University, specializing in learning and behavior, and continuing her love of physiological psychology with crossover coursework in NYU’s Center for Neural Science. This led to a special interest in neuropharmacology and eventually seeking a career in the pharmaceutical industry.
For over 20 years, Dr. Krial-Victor has been a qualitative medical market researcher, interviewing physicians, nurses, and patients to gather perceptions about use of various pharmaceutical and biotechnology products in the treatment of many medical conditions. Dr. Krial-Victor has directed research serving pharmaceutical companies’ needs to learn about opportunity assessment for new products, understanding patient and physician decision making during all stages of the diagnostic and treatment process, developing advertizing and communications materials for patients and physicians, and assessing effectiveness of communications in use. Her forté became projects requiring understanding of the molecular cascade of events in complex, technical treatment areas, including a recent focus in oncology.
