I have worked in research administration for 8 years. I started as a Research Study Assistant at MSK, working with investigators to identify eligible participants for clinical trials at the institution’s network sites and manage their schedules while on the study.
The accomplishment I'm most proud of is serving as the Chair of the Posters Committee for MSK’s Research Professionals Day (RPD) since 2018. RPD is a yearly conference set aside to appreciate, honor and celebrate all research professionals. As the chair, I am responsible for the planning, selection process, and presentation of the Posters Program at the conference. Due to the 2020 pandemic, the format of the conference and the poster presentations were switched to virtual; this was very well received, as it was more interactive and engaging, and allowed people to view the posters at their own pace with little to no distractions.
I believe that I have a lot to offer in terms of mentorship, reinvention, and contribution to Research Administration. Becoming a member of SRAI will broaden my professional horizon.
