Maeve Flanagan worked in a lab at the Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, doing bench research on infantile leukemia from 2017 to 2018. After that, she worked for four years as a Research Assistant at the Bloom Syndrome Registry at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City, where she managed Institutional Review Board applications, enrolled registrants, collected data, and co-authored seven publications. Beginning in May of 2022, Flanagan has been working as an Advocacy Fellow at the Global Healthy Living Foundation. In this role, she has translated her experience working with and advocating for patients from a clinical perspective to conduct legislative advocacy for people with chronic illness. Flanagan is eager for the opportunity to further synthesize these experiences as a PCORI Ambassador.
