Carrie Lee, MD, MPH, Medical Director of the University of North Carolina (UNC) Lineberger’s Clinical Protocol Office, has been appointed the Chair-Elect of the Association of American Cancer Institute’s (AACI) Clinical Research Initiative Steering Committee. Her Chair term will start in 2017.
Dr. Lee, who is Assistant Professor in the Division of Hematology/Oncology, oversees clinical, regulatory, compliance, financial, and data management for the therapeutic clinical trials at UNC Lineberger.
AACI established the Clinical Research Initiative 8 years ago to develop better methods to disseminate information across cancer centers, identify and address clinical research challenges, and measure progress.
Dr. Lee said she is honored to serve in this capacity. “The scientific advances driving the era of personalized cancer medicine are tremendous,” she noted. “But we need to take an equally intense look at the clinical trial processes and operations that will facilitate enrollment of patients on the innovative trials that will bring these new treatments from bench to bedside.” ■
