Kathy Franco is one of the most dedicated researchers I have met. Not because of the research she participates in, the importance of which can’t be overstated, but because she dedicates so much time to training the next generation of researchers (PI’s, Coordinators, Monitors, etc.) and retraining the current population of researchers to maintain the absolute peak of quality. She is willing to take calculated risks to support her people, which has resulted in many bold and innovative proposals and grant opportunities. I enthusiastically and strongly recommend Kathy, and I’m confident many more will as well. #Mentor4Life

Dr. Ramsey is a pioneer in clinical research operations – she’s always on the cutting edge of how technology can partner with incredible clinical research professionals to accelerate research. She has over 30 years of clinical experience and has overseen over 300 clinical trials.

Not only is she impacting UTHSC, but her service in numerous leadership capacities across industry groups and other universities show her dedication to advancing clinical research as a whole. Her knowledge, expertise and compassion are second to none.

When I see this quote from Florence Nightingale, Dr. Ramsey comes to mind:

Rather, ten times die in the surf, heralding the way to a new world, than stand idly on the shore.”
