As Director of Project Development in Cellular and Gene Therapies I design, facilitate, and manage translational research projects and act as project manager for the DiPersio research group. I coordinate agreements to transfer materials to or from other academic or government institutions and from companies; establish or mediate internal or external collaborations or company-sponsored research projects; oversee negotiation of complex agreements for services needed by the lab; prepare reports on our various projects; organize presentations for prospective or active donors; manage and participate in the four subgroup meetings which occur biweekly within the larger DiPersio lab; and organize the Center for Gene and Cellular Immunotherapies-Works in Progress speaker series. I actively participate in ensuing preclinical studies and the translational studies leading to trials. I also write the CMC portion of IND applications for CAR-T cells generated in the DiPersio lab, facilitate development of trial protocols and completion of the trials, including the first gene therapy trial at Washington University (IND 11917, JF DiPersio, PI). In addition, I have managed both internal and external regulatory issues associated with such studies.
