Associate Vice President

Ms. Christianson’s passion for research was ignited by her experience as a pregnant subject in a clinical trial. Following this experience, Ms. Christianson became a Research Nurse at a large academic medical center and spent a number of years managing a mix of investigator-initiated, industry, and NIH-supported research.

Ms. Christianson eventually transitioned into a role in Academic Affairs and was responsible for establishing a human research quality assurance/improvement program, training and on-going education programs, and building the foundation for a comprehensive Human Research Protection Program of which she was named Director. Ms. Christianson led the program through a successful application for AAHRPP accreditation in 2010 and was subsequently invited to become an AAHRPP site visitor. Her dedication to best practices in research was honored at the 2011 PRIM&R AER conference when she was presented with IRBNet’s Ethics in Human Subject Protection Award.

Ms. Christianson joined HRP Consulting Group in 2013 and has since successfully partnered with a number of clients to evaluate, improve, and support their HRPP, IRB, and Research Integrity functions. Her specialties include program evaluation and enhancement, process evaluation and enhancement, accreditation support, policy development, training, and management of compliance issues.
