Development & Partnerships Committee
Marcella is a molecular oncologist who later in her career fell in love with clinical research. She worked at Harvard Clinical Research Institute where she led the Trial Design and the Clinical Trial Innovation Departments and then moved to Science 37, where she was the Vice President of Patient Affairs while also holding a position as the Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board for Stanford Medicine X. She is currently the Vice President of Patient Advocacy at monARC Bionetworks.
As a creative builder and change agent, Marcella’s mission is to promote a human centered healthcare system, built on empathy and radical collaboration where each patient is recognized and treated as an individual with unique experiences, hopes and expectations; where each patient is respected for the expertise that they can bring to the table, is empowered, engaged and has a voice in their own care.
