Lauren E. Allen is a Research Associate at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Department of Health Policy and Management. She is the Chief of Operations of the Coordinating Center for the Major Extremity Trauma and Rehabilitation Consortium (METRC). The goal of METRC is to produce the evidence needed to establish treatment guidelines for the optimal care of the wounded warrior and ultimately to improve the clinical, functional, and quality of life outcomes of both service members and civilians who sustain high energy limb trauma. The Coordinating Center and more than 60 Level 1 and Level 2 civilian trauma centers and Military Treatment Facilities work together to conduct more than 25 multi-center randomized controlled trials and observational studies.
Ms. Allen’s research interests pertain to clinical research administration with a particular emphasis on the operational mechanisms of control which contribute to robust and effective multi-center study implementation and data quality assurance plans.
