    Academic Prog Prof 3, Pediatrics - Cardiology

    Current Role at Stanford I 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.

Most recently, I was the Senior Fellowship Coordinator for the Department of Pediatrics, and prior to that I was the Fellowship and Postdoctoral Administrator in the Department of Pediatrics, Hematology/Oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Other positions I have held included Pediatric Residency Coordinator for Lucile Packard Children?s Hospital at Stanford University and the Graduate Medical Education Coordinator for the Department of OB/GYN and Reproductive Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco.

I?ve collaborated on a number of scholarly activities with fellow APPD colleagues in the area of professional empowerment and advancement of coordinators, coordinator wellness, program evaluation committees and annual program evaluations, clinical competency committees and milestones, as well as presented a fellow/faculty development workshop on milestones and assessment tools for our division. I continue to seek out opportunities to collaborate, mentor, and take on leadership positions.

    Outside of graduate medical education, I am the mother of a very active and curious seven year-old. I also enjoy spending time with my family exploring the Bay Area, hiking, cooking, and enjoying food and wine and the vibrant arts culture. A brief stint as a pastry cook, I love to cook and bake with my son. Additionally, I continue to be involved in my alma mater, Vassar College, by co-chairing the Vassar Alumnae/i Admissions Program in San Francisco.
