Clinical Research Project Manager
Center for Data Driven Discovery in Biomedicine
Alex Flitter is a Clinical Research Project Manager responsible for overseeing a new surgical protocol to collect samples from patients coming into CHOP for surgery across many divisions. He will also be working the CNS tumor program team on projects such as CBTTC, PNOC, liquid biopsy and Gift from a Child.
Prior to joining CHOP in March of 2020, Alex was a Research Project Manager at the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania. As the project manager, Alex was responsible for managing two research studies: the first involved the testing of an organizational change model designed to break down the cultural and systematic barriers of community mental health clinics in order to allow for the better treatment of tobacco use disorder. The second study investigated the translational use of the nicotine metabolite ratio for increasing clinician prescription and patient use of medications for nicotine dependence.
Alex earned both a BA and MA in psychology from Rutgers University. He is committed to using his knowledge and experience managing research studies to contribute to the main goal of the center: to drive innovation in translational research in order to accelerate the discovery of cures for childhood cancer.
