Kaitlyn received her Bachelor of Science in Immunology and Infectious Disease and a Minor in Biology from The Pennsylvania State University in 2016. During her time at Penn State, she was first introduced to clinical research as an intern at the University of Virginia, as well as Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia. While working as an intern with the Radiation Oncology department here at the university, she supported research efforts to evaluate the effects of dose sparing of cardiac structures by implementing the Voluntary Deep Inspiratory Breath Hold (VDIBH) protocol in patients receiving left breast radiation. While working at Cancer Treatment Centers of America, she retrieved, organized, and prepared a variety of documentation for the Stem Cell Transplant and Cellular Therapy Unit, in order to prepare for audit and accreditation by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT). Continuing her work with research, Kaitlyn joined the STAC team in June 2017, working on a variety of clinical trials coordinated in the office.
