    NARRATIVE:

    Katie Schmitz is the author of more than 180 articles in scientific literature (scopus h-index = 44) on the topics of cancer, behavioral research, rehabilitation, exercise science, obesity prevention, and other areas of medicine and public health.

    Katie has been the director of an NCI funded TREC center over the past five years, including participation in the national steering committee of the TREC initiative. During her year as the chair of the TREC steering committee, she led the PIs of all TREC centers through a discernment process to develop the vision, mission, and objectives statements that guided the initiative to the end of funding, and has contributed significantly as a thought leader to this national NIH multi-site research initiative.

    In addition the TREC initiative, she has deep experience in multi-site data collection and exercise intervention studies from her work on the HERITAGE family exercise study under the direction of her doctoral advisor, Dr. Art Leon, as well as her leadership role of the measurement logistics working group of the Trial of Activity for Adolescent Girls. Both of these studies carried out measurements and interventions across multiple universities across the United States, including sharing data with a coordinating center in a timely fashion and centralized decision making. I have been familiar with the development of standardized procedures and data tracking since the beginning of my doctoral training in 1994. I have deep experience with the development of common exercise and measurement protocols across multiple sites, and training and quality assurance procedures to ensure that all protocols are adhered to with high fidelity and data are collected in the most rigorous manner.

    The TREC Center she leads includes a collaboration with a cancer biologist (Lewis Chodosh) who has been conducting an animal model study that is designed to parallel her ongoing human clinical trial (the WISER Survivor Trial). Therefore, she is a uniquely transdisciplinary scientist: her own studies are in humans, but she is comfortable collaborating with scientists who conduct animal studies. She has successfully recruited and retained large cohorts of adults in exercise intervention trials, with high proportions of minority participants in most of these trials. These aerobic and resistance exercise trials have included the SHE study (N=164, 2 year study), PAL trial (N=295, 1 year study), WISER (N=319, 4 month study), WISER Sister (N=139, 5 month study), and WISER Survivor (N=351, 1 year study), as well as numerous smaller trials.
