Vice President, Global Head DMPK and Bioanalytical R&D and Deputy Head of Pharmaceutical Sciences Hoffman-La Roche Inc.
In high school, Lisa Benincosa admired the work of her local pharmacist and thought the field would be challenging and well-respected. While receiving her bachelor of pharmacy degree from West Virginia University, she participated in a six-week summer research project, much like the opportunity offered by AFPE’s Gateway to Research Scholarship. This experience inspired her to continue her education and pursue a PhD. in pharmaceutical sciences from SUNY at Buffalo. Her AFPE Pre-Doctoral Fellowship enabled her to complete her degree.

Before joining AFPE, Rachel graduated from Langley High School in McLean, Va, where she was an active member of the school and club swim teams and earned the scholar athlete award multiple seasons. Her extracurricular activities included several choir organizations, both the Math and National Honor Societies, and serving as a Math teacher’s assistant. Her senior year, she orchestrated a self-run donation drive for the Children’s National Medical Center, successfully collecting over 300 stuffed animals to give comfort to patients at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC.
Currently a junior at George Mason University, Rachel has volunteered for the past year in the child pediatric section at INOVA Fairfax hospital. Her recent accomplishments include achieving a 4.0 in her most recent spring semester of 2014. She continues to be a dedicated coach for the swim program, Norman Swimming. As a member of the Chi Omega Fraternity, she assists in numerous fundraisers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Rachel looks forward to graduating with a Bachelor’s of science degree in Health Administration, and we are excited to benefit from her ambition and enthusiasm this summer at AFPE.
We're looking for a few good volunteers to serve as subject experts for various projects in the coming year. Please contact Sherri Hunter, Grants Manager.
