Presenter Headshot - Gillian Bernal

Gillian Bernal joined the IRB team in March of 2014 after graduating from the University of Central Florida. Gillian started as an assistant to the department, moved into a specialist role, and then moved into the role of manager. During Gillian's time with UCF, she managed to successfully reduce the review time for new studies from 6 months to 2-6 weeks from submission to approval. Gillian's accomplishments involve creating new forms for the research community to streamline submissions, assisting in the transitioning to new software, and trained multiple new employees. Bernal's goals include growing the IRB department and creating a separate HRPP department for the University.
