Elligo Health Research names Rebecca Kush scientific innovation officer

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Elligo Health Research, a clinical research infrastructure (CRI) provider that brings together sponsors, clinicians, patients and CROs to improve clinical trial access and efficiency, has hired Rebecca Kush, Ph.D., as scientific innovation officer.

Kush is the founder and was the president and CEO of the Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) where she spent 20 years leading the development of global clinical research data standards to streamline clinical research. While there, she had an integral role in the development of methods and processes to link research and healthcare.

Kush’s extensive research and process expertise will support Elligo’s unique Goes Direct approach, using electronic health record data to identify patients for research studies, then providing these patients’ physicians with the personnel, procedures, technology and infrastructure necessary to conduct the study in their own clinics.

Kush earned a doctorate in physiology and pharmacology from the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine and also has worked for the U.S. National Institutes of Health, academia, a global CRO and U.S. and Japanese pharmaceutical companies during her career.

“This anchors an important area of growth for Elligo,” said John Potthoff, Ph.D., co-founder and CEO of Elligo Health Research. “Kush’s unrivaled experience in data standards will have an immediate impact—widening access to data for trial sponsors from source to submission.”
