Current Role at StanfordI joined the Cardiopulmonary Research Program of Drs. Rabinovitch and Bland at Stanford University in 2002, as the Academic and Research Program Officer. I organize the educational activities of the lab, and assist the faculty and fellows with the preparation of grant proposals, IRB, APLAC and Biosafety protocols, manuscripts, and presentations. I serve as the Site Coordinator for the Stanford Transplant Procurement Center of the Pulmonary Hypertension Breakthrough Initiative (PHBI), headed by Dr. Rabinovitch, and in this capacity, I oversee patient recruitment, data collection and reporting, and ensure compliance with university and federal guidelines. I coordinated and prepared the application for an Investigational New Drug (IND) and the pre-IND meeting that preceded that, for Elafin as a therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) to the FDA in August 2017, that was approved without comments.
From 2005-2015, I served as the Administrative Coordinator of the Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Science Scholarly Concentration for medical students at Stanford University School of Medicine. This includes facilitating communication of the four co-Directors with the School of Medicine Administration, the medical students, and the faculty mentors. An important component of this role is the coordination of the MED223 course, a medical school course where faculty and fellows present new developments in cardiovascular science in the form of a journal club. From 2013-2018, I was the coordinator for the NIH-NHLBI T32 “Mechanisms and Innovation in Vascular Disease” (PI: RL Dalman), and from 2013 to date for NIH-NHLBI K12 HL120001 “Stanford Career Development Program in ‘Omics’ of Lung Disease”. (PIs: M Rabinovitch, MR Nicolls and MP Snyder). This included recruitment of candidates, oversight of training activities, ensuring compliance with NIH and Stanford policies, and acting as a liaison between the trainees and the Directors to facilitate effective communication.
Prior to joining Stanford, I was Associate Director (Scientific Development Administrator) at the Institute for Medicine and Engineering, directed by Dr. Peter Davies at the University of Pennsylvania. In this role, I was the liaison with federal funding agencies and organized multi-investigator program projects and training grants.
