Clinical research is like a team sport. So, when a research leader makes certain her team has the resources, training and support they need, they are ensuring a win every time. Michele’s dedication to her team, her ability to put herself in each person’s shoes and then not only strategize a plan, but execute it, is truly admirable. As an observer of her perseverance amidst this troubling health crisis, I am amazed she can get out of bed every day and continue to face the mounting challenges. Her forward thinking has put her team in a position of strength during a difficult time so that she can continue in her unwavering dedication to the patients of Mt Sinai.
