Kyle Dexter is a Clinical Research Associate for Proxima Clinical Research, a contract research organization that serves the emerging drug and medical device industries. 

Over his career, Kyle has served in many different roles within the clinical research space. He served as a clinical research coordinator at two major hospitals in the Cleveland, Ohio area (Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center). During his time at these institutions, he was involved in coordinating clinical trials in the Neurological Institute and Cardiovascular and Vascular Institute. During this time, Kyle also served as the Clinical Regulatory coordinator for the wide scope of trials being conducted in the Cardiovascular and Vascular Institute. Following Kyle’s site level involvement, he served as a Clinical Field Specialist and Clinical Research Coordinator for TriReme Medical. During his time there, he was responsible for device training, device use support, clinical trial support and clinical monitoring. He continued to work in the clinical trial sponsor space for SPR Therapeutics as a Clinical Research Associate, where he provided clinical trial support for two peripheral nerve stimulator trials. Most recently, Kyle has served as a Clinical Research Associate for IQVIA MedTech providing clinical trial support and clinical monitoring for a wide range of clinical trials.  

Kyle received his B.S in Neuroscience from Ohio Northern University where he also served as a Research Assistant under Dr. Philip Zoladz. He has been published in two peer reviewed articles and presented two posters at the 42nd Annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in 2012. The research lab focused on using animal models to investigate the potential correlation between memory loss and stress/PTSD; as well as the correlation between corticosterone response and memory impairment.
