Rosetta Chiavacci, Senior Clinical Research Program Manager

Rosetta is our Senior Clinical Research Program Manager, and joined CAG at its inception in July, 2006. She heads our Clinical team, serves as liaison between our Clinical and Research programs, and provides support for ongoing clinical research projects. In this capacity, her responsibilities include ensuring compliance with all regulatory requirements, ensuring investigators practice within GCP guidelines, and ensuring that direct reports maintain and follow all CHOP Human Resource policies. Rosetta also maintains a network with other CHOP physicians and research groups to provide education and mentorship regarding research studies being conducted within the Center.

Prior to CAG, she had a diverse career. She previously worked as a staff nurse in both Neonatal and Cardiac ICU here at CHOP, directed a Pediatric Home Care company, worked in Process Improvement for the Center for Quality and Patient Safety, and served as the Clinical Research Operations Manager for the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine for 8 years.

Rosetta received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Wilkes University in 1978.
