Brittany Wolf Gianares

As a patient-turned-professional, Brittany Wolf Gianares believes patient-centered research is an absolute necessity. She has a public health background, having obtained her Bachelor of Science from the Rutgers University School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and her Master of Public Health in Health Policy and Management from New York University. What ignited her passion was her lupus and ankylosing spondylitis diagnoses. She has since become a patient community ambassador and Lupus Research Action Network advocate with the Lupus Foundation of America. Aside from her advocacy work, Wolf Gianares started her career in outcomes research focusing on regenerative medicine. Following that, she began working at Pfizer, with her most current role being the patient centricity lead of the Oncology Global Scientific Communications Team. Her responsibility is to develop a comprehensive plan to make science understandable and accessible for patients and their caregivers. She aims to strengthen provider-patient relationships by executing opportunities for patient-partnered research, advancing shared decision making and inclusion of patients in the scientific community and empowering patients to feel confident to be an active part of their care team by giving them equitable opportunities to learn new advances in science. As a patient herself, Wolf Gianares feels it is her purpose and duty to be a voice for those patients who are unable to have their voices heard. This is a gift that she will never take for granted.
