Angela Dobes, MPH, is the vice president of IBD Plexus at the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, a research information exchange platform that leverages a patient-centric approach to collect and integrate multi-dimensional, real-world data to accelerate progress toward precision medicine and improve the lives of children and adults affected by inflammatory bowel disease. Dobes also oversees all direct-to-patient research and engagement initiatives at the Foundation.
Dobes devotes much of her time to advancing patient-centered research and is passionate about ensuring research, care interventions, and treatments are meaningful to patients. Her work has been funded through organizations such as the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute and The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust. In addition, she strives to elevate the important role patient registries and biorepositories play in the pursuit of high-value and high-quality patient-centered research through volunteering on external committees and initiatives, including The National Academies of Science, Engineering & Medicine project titled, Data Capacity for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research: An Agenda for 2021 to 2030.
In addition to her experience at the Foundation, Dobes has previously worked for clinical technology and pharmaceutical organizations, where she has led implementation of various technology solutions focused on business optimization and accelerating the delivery of new therapies to patients safely.
