She holds a degree in nursing and has been committed to human subject protection and clinical site operations for more than 20 years.
This interactive session leads off with historical site start-up, subject recruitment metrics and the reasons why some believe these “norms” are expected to continue. New data will then be presented
from a recently completed industry collaborated project. This project collected and analyzed site start-up metrics to conclude the best predictors for start-up times required for different types of sites. Interventions for improved operational activities, leading to the “new norm” for start-up time and enrollment, will be discussed. Bring questions and lessons learned!

With Peter Margolis, MD, PhD, he is co-principal investigator of the C3N Project, funded by a Transformative R01 grant from the NIH to design and test a new system for transforming chronic care. He has been principal and co-principal investigator of numerous large multi-disciplinary federally-funded research studies and publishes widely in such journals as Medical Care, HSR: Health Services Research, Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Pediatrics, American Journal of Medical Quality, Ambulatory Pediatrics, and Milbank Quarterly.

Dr. Ammerman is a professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s and scientific director, Every Child Succeeds. He received his PhD in 1986 in clinical psychology from the University of Pittsburgh. He is certified in cognitive and behavioral psychology from the American Board of Professional Psychology. Dr. Ammerman’s research interests include enhancing early childhood prevention programs with a focus on maternal mental health, trauma, and social/emotional development in children. Dr. Ammerman is the recipient of grants from the National Institute on Mental Health, National Institute on Child Health and Development, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, National Institute on Disabilities and Rehabilitation Research, and Vira I. Heinz Foundation.
Dr. Noll is a professor of Pediatrics in the Divisions of Behavioral Medicine and Clinical Psychology with a joint appointment in Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Cincinnati Children’s. Her primary program of research has focused on the bio-psycho-social health consequences of severe child abuse.
Through long-term, prospective longitudinal study, Dr. Noll and her colleagues have published some of the most definitive research attesting to the abuse sequelae spanning a host of developmental outcomes including obesity, health-care utilization, teen pregnancy, premature delivery, steep disturbances, stress-responsivity and cognitive abilities. Dr. Noll has forged a particular niche within the field of child maltreatment with her focus on the comprehensive assessment of sexual attitudes and activities, as well as variations in sexual development observed in teens abused as children. In her current R01, more than 500 females are being assessed longitudinally throughout adolescence in order to explicate pathways to aberrant sexual development that are directly attributable to the trauma of childhood abuse. Dr. Noll has conducted several longitudinal studies of abused populations spanning as many as 25 years and has been able to accomplish retention rates of up to 96 percent. She has ample experience recruiting large numbers of abused adolescents and has forged agreements and long-term relationships with protective service agencies who have granted access to these populations. Most recently, Dr. Noll has conducted research regarding adolescent internet use patterns, exposures to sexual media, online social behaviors and risk for internet-initiated victimization. Dr. Noll also holds a regulatory position as the Research Subject Advocate for Cincinnati Children’s CTSA where she functions as the chair of the IRB and Safety Subcommittee for all CTSA studies throughout the health sciences campuses (i.e., Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, University Hospital, the VA Hospital and the University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center).
