We are excited to introduce the two newest additions to the IRB Office, Aly Vanderweide and Jennifer Wang!

Aly is our new IRB Office Administrator.  Aly has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a paralegal associates degree. She has years of experience as an office manager for several Madison-based public/government relations and lobbying firms.  In addition to serving as the liaison with HR, Aly manages the complex task of scheduling IRB members and meetings for 8 panels across both the HS and MRR IRBs!

Jennifer will be starting with the IRB office as a staff reviewer, primarily for the HS IRB, in mid-October. Jennifer has a bachelor’s degree in genetics from UW Madison, has worked as a study coordinator, and most recently as a regulatory manager in the Orthopedics/Rehabilitation and Urology Divisions.  We are looking forward to her bringing this expertise to the staff reviewer position!

Welcome Aly and Jennifer!
