Denise Clutter Snyder, M.S., R.D., L.D.N.
Associate Dean for Clinical Research, Duke University of Medicine
Denise received her BS (’93) and MS (’97) degrees in Nutrition at Penn State University. After relocating to North Carolina in 1997, she worked in public health and clinical nutrition, but soon gravitated back to research work at Duke as a project manager in 2000 where she managed several NIH/NCI-funded protocols involving an array of diet and exercise interventions with breast, prostate and colorectal cancer survivors. She has co-authored more than 50 publications and presented at national conferences. In 2008, Denise used her research and Duke-specific experience to create the Research Management Team (RMT) to support the School of Nursing’s research faculty. In 2009, RMT received support from Duke’s CTSA to leverage the group’s services for the School of Medicine and became the home for the REDCap implementation. For the past 5 years, Denise has been the Associate Dean for Clinical Research for Duke University School of Medicine. In this role, she leads the Duke Office of Clinical Research (DOCR) a support office of expertise in study logistics, data management, regulatory oversight and guidance for clinical research operations for Duke as a site.
