Lisa Speicher, PhD, recently decided to leave her position at Children’s Hospital to assume an exciting new role as the Executive Director of the Office of Clinical Research at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
While at CHOP, Lisa oversaw tremendous growth in the Clinical Trials Office (CTO), for which she served as director since 2006. She also spearheaded the development of the Office of IND/IDE Support and served as its director, and was associate director of the Office of Clinical and Translational Research.
Lisa’s official last day at CHOP was July 19. Jennifer Goldfarb will serve as interim director of the CTO, and questions and issues related to clinical trials should be directed to her. Questions about IND/IDE Support should be directed to Mary Leonard.
While we are sorry to lose her, we are excited for the new opportunity for Lisa to bring her extensive talents and expertise to our colleagues at Penn.
