In 2010 Margaret Harris shifted her career of more than 20 years in the biopharmaceutical industry as a bench chemist, health science associate, and hospital systems manager to join a remote patient monitoring start-up company as director of business development. There she helped develop a patient-centered platform, design protocols, and implement clinical study partnerships, including an IRB-approved feasibility trial at one of Brown University’s teaching hospitals. For the past several years her role in industry has been working with researchers who are developing gene-editing technologies and therapeutics. Harris regularly engages in dialogue with pharmaceutical, biotech, and academic research and development leaders in her community and believes engagement with PCORI (and PCORnet) is the most promising path forward.

Such projects won’t be listed by a primary disease/condition and so won’t appear if you use this filter tool to find them. View Glossary
