Director of Research Business Development
Curious and down-to-earth, Chris Green is an integral part of our research team, investigating new devices and medications with the goal of helping patients live the lives they want to live, comfortably.
After serving in the United States Marine Corps, Chris attended graduate school at the University of Texas before moving to Oregon. His first research-related job was at Oregon Health & Science University, where he worked on a study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, called Adolescents Training and Learning to Avoid Steroids (ATLAS). This peer-led program offered high school football players healthy sports nutrition and strength-training alternatives, which became an award-winning, commercialized program with results published in The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
Chris also worked on the “Pool Cool Project,” a skin cancer prevention program at the Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, which won the prestigious “Award for Excellence in Education” from the American Academy of Dermatology.
Later, he worked as a corporate representative in recruiting, pharmaceuticals and medical devices before returning to research. This corporate experience allows Chris to understand the needs of the industry to investigate and commercialize new technology to benefit patients.
Chris is certified as a Clinical Research Coordinator and has worked with industry sponsors and on pharmaceutical and medical device studies for several years.
