Nina Laney, M.S.Ed Program Manager

Nina has been involved in research at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia since 2011. Prior to her role as Program Manager for the Lifespan Brain Institute, Nina supported CHOP's Division of Nephrology as: a Research Coordinator across multiple protocols; the Clinical Program Coordinator for the Nephrology/Cardiology H.A.V.E clinic; and the Clinical Program Manager for the Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring Program. In her role as Program Manager for the Lifespan Brain Institute, she oversees the administrative and regulatory aspects of research across the institute, as well as outreach to form new partnerships across CHOP and Penn to further LiBI's goal of conducting collaborative, multi-disciplinary research guided by a lifespan approach.
