Natalie Oppenheimer
Clinical Research Program Manager II

Natalie Oppenheimer is a Research Program Manager at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.


Natalie Oppenheimer joined the Center for Injury Research and Prevention in January 2018 as the Program Coordinator for Dr. Flaura Winston. Now as a Research Program Manager, she provides management support to two growing programs: the Innovation Ecosystem Initiative, an inter-disciplinary team whose portfolio of projects aims to foster an innovation-positive culture, build individual and institutional capacity for taking ideas from ideation to implementation, and enhance connectivity between people and resources; and the Neuroscience of Driving team who investigates the neurological basis of driving behavior, with a focus on young adults and novice drivers, by using a driving simulator and other relevant data to improve driving skills and affect policy and best practice.

Natalie has experience in both Clinical and Social Psychology research. Prior to joining CHOP, she worked in a clinical research lab at Fox Chase Cancer Center exploring quality of life issues and patient-provider communication among breast cancer patients and survivors. Previously, she also spent time in a Work and Organization Studies Lab at MIT Sloan School of Management studying gender and race counterstereotypes. This lab work allowed Natalie to develop strong analytical, writing, organizational, and communication skills which she uses and continues to refine in her current role.
