Catherine Lopez, MS, Clinical Research Program Coordinator, joined the Developing Brain Institute in 2018. Having previously worked in transplant clinical trials, she joined the team with a keen understanding of research activities for their ongoing fetal studies. Over time, her interests in health education and literacy have grown and the Institute has helped to foster these interests as well as apply them to her current work in maternal and infant health. A native of the greater District of Columbia region, she hopes to bring research to women and children in this area, especially those who may be more marginalized or have less access.
