Kendra's Responsibilities

As a Research Informationist I support Memorial Sloan Kettering's mission with expertise in advanced search techniques, evidence-based practice, research support, and education.

My role involves being the Liaison for Interventional Radiology (providing support for searches, research projects, current awareness, and training), a member of the Systematic Review Service (assisting teams with all stages of evidence synthesis, from crafting a research question to collecting data to publishing), and a part of library leadership special projects and marketing efforts.
