Meet Liz Parsons

Responsibility at the KTB:

Grants Coordinator

Why do you do what you do? Or what brought you here?

I served in a similar position for the past 17 years for the IU Simon Cancer Center and was asked by the principal investigators to serve as their grants person. I am responsible for all pre- and post-award management of this complex project.

Favorite KTB story/experience?

Our very first blood collection events at the Komen Race for the Cure in Indianapolis followed by the Komen Race for the Cure in Dallas. It was just amazing and overwhelming the number of women that showed up and to hear their stories.

Other passions in life:

My cats! Movies and reading.
