Ms. Hunt has invested over 25 years working in the fields of nursing and clinical research, specializing in oncology and transplant patient populations. After years of bedside nursing, she transitioned to the management of oncology clinical trials for healthcare institutions. Ms. Hunt’s formal background and experience enabled her to develop the clinical operations of a disease-specific non-profit, including an oncology clinical trials program and disease-specific biorepository.
In 2007, Ms. Hunt launched the Edwards-Hunt Group to support the development of new assays to support the diagnosis and monitoring of cancerous conditions. Her efforts have expanded to support a spectrum of conditions including dementia, Alzheimer's, infectious diseases including COVID-19, endocrine, gastrointestinal, sexual health and other non-malignant diseases.
As a registered nurse, Ms. Hunt is an active patient advocate. “I speak on behalf of the patient community with regard to biospecimen acquisition issues,” she explains. “I also work with national organizations to ensure the patient’s intent and sense-of-self is protected throughout the biospecimen acquisition process, including during the collection, transfer, and use of biospecimens, as well as throughout the reporting of research results.”
As a result of Ms. Hunt’s contributions in the biobanking industry, she has been named FasterCure's Who's Who of Biobanking.
