Clinical Trials Program Coordinator
Sara K. Robinson, MS is the Clinical Trials Program Coordinator at The Steadman Clinic and Steadman Philippon Research Institute. Sara has a Master of Science in Bioinformatics from Georgetown University and completed a staff research fellowship at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Women’s Health in June 2017. While at the FDA, Sara surveyed prescription drug labeling and medical reviews to evaluate the extent of subpopulation analysis in clinical trials and developed educational materials to advance the understanding of sex differences and health conditions unique to women.
The current assessment of effectiveness and safety of orthobiologics to treat musculoskeletal conditions is limited by inadequate reporting of scientific data critical to outcome, and Sara is interested in closing this knowledge gap. She recently completed a collaboration with Peter Millett, MD, Johnny Huard, PhD, and SPRI staff on “Platelet-Rich Plasma for Rotator Cuff Repair: Are We Adhering to the Minimum Information for Studies Evaluating Biologics in Orthopaedics? A Systematic Review,” accepted for publication in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine in May 2021.
