Michelle Manxhari, Clinical Research Coordinator

Michelle Manxhari, a Clinical Research Coordinator in the Department of Neurology, born and raised in Worcester, MA, and her family from Albania, will celebrate her one-year work anniversary with our team in May of 2024. She manages many tasks as a research coordinator, including screening, consenting, and enrolling patients into clinical trials. She also conducts participation study visits, assists with data entry, analysis, and maintaining regulatory documentation. Through this position, she has learned more about the various aspects of health care. In 2023, Michelle graduated from Holy Cross College with a degree in Biology before joining UMass Chan. Prior to her current role, she has previous experience as a pharmacy technician and a patient care associate.  

Michelle’s interest in Biology and her various experiences in health care have inspired her to continue becoming a physician. While she aspires to become a pediatric primary care physician, her current position in the neurology department has sparked an interest in pursuing neurology. She is interested in learning more about the safety and efficacy of investigational drugs and devices used on patients who suffer from neurological disorders that do not currently have effective treatment options available. 

Michelle shares, “As a Worcester native, the ability to conduct meaningful research in my community has been rewarding. It has allowed me to work closely with several extraordinary neurologists in the research setting to improve clinical care and the outcomes of patients. I am very grateful to be given this opportunity and I hope to continue to give back to my community as I embark on my journey of becoming a physician." 

In Michelle’s time off, she enjoys baking and going for walks outdoors.
