Sharon Nachman has been an inspirational leader and trusted colleague through my time here at Stony Brook. She has helped to foster my clinical research career, has a wealth of knowledge and experience in clinical trials, and had me participate on study calls and with protocol writing early on. She has introduced me to leaders nationally and internationally in my research field of interest. In her role as chair of a large HIV clinical trials network, she encouraged me to attend meetings with her and join one of the network’s committees. It is through these networking opportunities that I have been able to build the foundation to become co-chair of an international tuberculosis treatment protocol.
Sharon has been a force in combating COVID through her work in vaccine clinical trials and has mentored our whole division in participating in these trials. Her patience, support and knowledge has shaped who I am as a researcher for the better. Her determination to make changes to improve the lives of her patients through her research work is nothing short of amazing.
