Jane Perlmutter, USA
Jane Perlmutter, Ph.D., MBA
Jane is a long-term cancer survivor and active advocate. While her advocacy is largely rooted in her own experiences, it is also informed by her formal training in computer and information science, business as well as her career experiences in academia, not-for-profit R&D, corporate senior management and independent consulting.
Much of her advocacy has focused on clinical trials–ensuring that the patient voice is considered in selection of research questions, design of trial protocols that are sensitive to patient issues, and encouraging innovation to increase the speed of developing new treatments. She is especially interested in innovative trial designs that can speed new treatments to patients who need them.
