Vice President, Research Operations, Sarah Cannon Research Institute
Jennifer Cole is the vice president of Research Operations for Sarah Cannon Research Institute (SCRI). She has been in the research industry for more than 20 years, and with SCRI since 2005. Jennifer started her career as an intensive care nurse after graduating Summa Cum Laude from the Loewenberg School of Nursing at the University of Memphis in 1998. From the beginning of her professional career, Jennifer has been passionate about the ability to advance therapies for patients and help ensure they are receiving the best possible treatment options. With the transition from bedside nursing to research operations, Jennifer continues to influence and play a part in both. Not only does she have the joy of working with SCRI research sites, colleagues, and physicians who directly impact our patients - but she also oversees and leads the centralized services department as part of our SMO, who are critical in supporting our sites, ensuring they have what they need to serve our patients in clinical trials.
