As Director of Clinical Research, the candidate will be responsible for the research portfolio of the cancer programs; partnerships and strategic planning; and investigator oversight and mentoring. The candidate will apply leadership skills and engage associates across multiple disciplines to further the research program in areas that include cancer care delivery research and cancer genomics through Geisinger’s MyCode project.

MyCode® Community Health Initiative has consented more than 112,000 Geisinger patients who will provide blood and/or tissue samples to be genetically sequenced. That data will be combined with each participant's medical record to provide Geisinger researchers with information to investigate new approaches to disease control, diagnosis and treatment. The study uses a broad consent and includes the ability to re-contact participants and share medically actionable results. As part of a partnership with Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, MyCode plans to collect samples from more than 250,000 consented patients, whose de-identified genomic data will help to improve patient care and speed drug discovery and development.
