The Biology Department was thrilled to see one of our alums, Regina Portnoy (BIO, '04), featured on the back inside cover of the latest Ventures magazine! An excerpt from the article is below, and the whole article can be read at http://www.stevenson.edu/alumni-giving/profiles-alumni/regina-portnoy -
“Villa Julie was my No. 1 choice for an undergraduate school because of its excellent biology program, small classes, and individual attention to the students.”
After graduating, Portnoy moved back to San Francisco to work for a biopharmaceutical company. After nearly eight years in the industry, she is currently serving as Senior Clinical Research Associate working on a clinical trial for ovarian cancer indications. In addition to other oncology trials, she has also helped initiate and set-up monitoring activities in cardiovascular transplant trials in France, the United Kingdom, and Germany.
“The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing the clinical-trial patients go on with a better quality of life,” Portnoy says. Along with working full-time, she is also earning a Master of Science degree in Regulatory Affairs.
