Meet Katrina Croghan, Clinical Research Coordinator

Katrina Croghan is clinical research coordinator for Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, assigned to the division of Hematology in Rochester, Minnesota.

She began her career in ecology and animal science, but while en route to a related Ph.D., ended up as a supplemental research coordinator because of her knowledge of writing protocols and conducting research. She says:

"For a short time, I worked as a float research coordinator. I would go to departments that needed research coordinators. Along the way, I learned many different aspects of being a coordinator."

When she had the opportunity to work with Morie Gertz, M.D., on an amyloidosis study in 2015, she found she thoroughly enjoyed working with patients, and ended up staying in hematology research.
