Teresa Saavedra

Clinical Research Supervisor and Coordinator

Columbia, Brandywine, Clinton, Lanham, Silver Spring

My career in hematology and oncology began in 2004, with my start in research dating back to 2010.  At MOH, I am responsible for the coordination of study related procedures ranging from recruitment, educating patients, training other clinical staff members on the study, and providing support to Primary Investigators.   As a site manager and supervisor, I strive to maintain excellency among all of the research staff in their dealings with patients and each other. I am captivated by the science behind clinical trials, and find joy knowing that I am doing something today to potentially help millions tomorrow. 


Kevin Maguire, B.S.

Clinical Research Coordinator

Frederick, Rockville, Bethesda

I have seven years of clinical experience starting in John Hopkins, then transferring to research at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and MOH.  In my current position with MOH I determine subject eligibility for clinical trials, provide oversight for patients on clinical trials, assure protocol compliance, and help educate staff on research related procedures.  I enjoy working with patients and having the ability to provide cutting edge, potentially life-saving treatment modalities for patients.

Nabeel K Qureshi, M.P.H, M.B.B.S

Clinical Research Coordinator 

Bethesda, Rockville

My interest in research started in 2012 when I started working on my master’s thesis, and since then expanded to areas of research from social epidemiology to Cognitive Psychiatry until finally taking up oncology research, providing me four years of experience. I focus my efforts on individual patient interaction to improve the overall research quality, patient experience, and data.  I am now privileged to be the part of MOH and enjoy my day to day activities which are unpredictable, challenging and interesting. 


Zara Necesario, B.S. Nursing

Clinical Research Coordinator

Silver Spring

I began working as a Research Assistant in 2006 and a Research Nurse in 2008.  I then became a Med-Surg Nurse at MedStar Harbor Hospital in 2010 working in Oncology. Being a Nurse Clinical Research Coordinator allows me to help the patients personally and directly, while also providing study information to all involved parties involved and searching for more participants for our trials. Oncology holds a special place in my heart, and being able to provide advanced treatment options to cancer patients gives me a purpose and fulfillment in life.

Jade Lee, B.A. Nursing

Clinical Research Coordinator

Silver Spring

My clinical research career started in Phase I research as a research associate.  My CRC experience began in 2014 working in Phase 2-3 hepatitis & GI clinical trials.  There, I learned about the regulatory, laboratory and data management aspects of clinical research that I apply to my job with MOH. I continue to learn and grow in my position here to optimize my patient care.  I like being a part of a patient’s journey and hope that I can make their experience as seamless as possible. In the future, I plan on pursuing my BSN.
