Strength Through Diversity
Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.
- Plans, directs and coordinates activities of the NIH-funded NYCKidSeq clinical trial, as well as other research projects as part of the Center for Genomic Health (CGH). CGH Ensures that goals or objectives of the projects are accomplished within prescribed time frame and funding parameters. Alters plans and makes recommendations for future project phases or future projects, based on lessons learned from the project.
- Communicates project initiatives and tasks to team members and committee members clearly and regularly. Confers with staff (clinical team, research team, other project managers and admin staff) to outline work plan and to assign duties, responsibilities, and scope of authority. Responds to feedback and status reports from the project team and applicable committees and Directors to revise the project standard operating procedures, protocol, tasks and/or timeline as necessary.
- Performs role of project manager for several NYCKidSeq working groups, including clinical genomic sequencing data analysis; developing innovative methods for improving clinical interpretation and annotation pipelines; and improving clarity of clinical reports for low health literacy and underserved populations. Manages internal and external communication regarding the work of these working group, scientific management, and reporting.
- Oversees clinical, genomic, and other research data governance, sharing and communication, and regulatory compliance for NYCKidSeq and other CGH projects, including participating to several working groups within CSER (Clinical Sequencing Evidence-Generating Research Consortium) organizing scientific conferences, training workshops, and presentations on project results; developing study protocol and standard operating procedures that are IRB compliant; managing research project budget; and data dissemination through federal data repositories.
- Participates to the submission of new IRB protocols, to the submission of project modifications and continuations, in coordination with other team members.
- Monitors progress toward project milestones to ensure metrics are met in a timely fashion and within prescribed budget including consultants and outside vendors. Prepares project scientific and administrative reports for management, or regulatory agencies as required.
- Coordinates aspects of clinical utility assessment, cost analysis, and impact on health services and health policy in conjunction with administrators, providers, scientists, and stakeholders within NYCKidSeq and CGH.
- Coordinates exchange of samples and data between several clinical diagnostic labs, including streamlining logistical steps and data quality through a REDCap database.
- Helps in the preparation and submission of new scientific proposals and publications pertaining to clinical genomic sequencing, health policy, and genomic medicine.
- Ensures all staffing requirements and allotment of available resources to various phases of projects are met. May contribute to the performance evaluation of the employees associated with the project and may evaluate vendors and consultants and their effectiveness and ability to deliver as promised.
- Maintains effectiveness when experiencing major changes in work responsibilities or environment; adjusts effectively to work within new work structures, processes, requirements or cultures.
- Initiates and maintains strategic relationships with stakeholders inside and outside the health system (e.g. physicians, cross-functional partners, payers, suppliers, community representatives) to advance research, clinical and business goals.
- Master’s degree or equivalent experience in any of the following areas strongly preferred: MPA, MPH, MBA
- 5-7 years of prior healthcare industry experience required, preferably in the areas of project management, change management, health care delivery re-design or integration, health policy reform.
