“Through my involvement in clinical and research based medicine, I function in multiple roles. As Medical Director of Research and Innovation at Mercy Health and former Executive Director of ClinXus LLC, I have developed unique relationships with the hospital systems, physicians (community based and employed) along with other life science organizations that provide the necessary support for our community based alliance in research. I am committed to innovative research that is fundamental to improving patient care and outcome based research. As a practicing Internal Medicine physician, I see the need for advanced support and implementation of preventative medicine with disease modification earlier and more aggressively as well as behavioral lifestyle changes. Additionally I have extensive medical and pharmacology background as a practicing physician and doctor of pharmacy for over twenty years. I currently represent Mercy Health in clinical research and innovation based efforts which embraces a community that encompasses two medical schools, a school of pharmacy, a life science research institute, multiple physician groups across a myriad of disciplines and a Phase I clinical trial unit.”
