Life Science Partner has recruited Lisa Griffin Vincent, PhD, MA to serve as Vice President of Clinical Affairs for the Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC), the first ever public-private partnership to advance medical device regulatory science to expedite development, assessment, and review of innovative medical technologies.

In this new role, Dr. Vincent will lead MDIC’s clinical operations and clinical initiatives, including clinical trials, real-world data generation and analysis, and the science of incorporating patient preference into protocol design.

Vincent was formerly Worldwide Vice President of Clinical Development and Medical Affairs for BD, a leading global medical technology company, where she was responsible for driving clinical development and organizational efficiency across the portfolio. She also founded and led a strategic consulting firm providing management consulting, business strategy, M&A support, and product development for companies across the life science and medical technology sectors, including MDIC.

Her earlier career is notable for C-level leadership positions at PatientPoint and the Regulatory and Clinical Research Institute, as well as senior leadership positions at Medtronic and UnitedHealth Group.

“Dr. Vincent brings a deep background in clinical research and an intimate knowledge of the FDA and MDIC,” notes Dr. Thomas Callaway, Founder and President of Life Science Partner. “Her experience working at the interface between regulatory agencies, industry stakeholders, and physicians to build coalitions for clinical trials will be a great asset as MDIC continues to shape the regulatory environment for medical devices.”
