Jana studied biology at the University of Southern California. After working in Sydney, Australia, in the medical device research field, she returned to the United States and found Glaukos, which was a small startup at the time. Jana loves the creativity that she’s allowed in her role at Glaukos.
Jana fields a lot of questions from investigative sites, partners with field clinical research associates to ensure they're trained on clinical study protocols, and mentors new employees as they become part of the Glaukos family. As part of the clinical research department, she also gets a first look at products being developed and tested, gleaning insight into the future of glaucoma therapy.
“Working at Glaukos is very dynamic. Different skill sets that I possess are tested on a daily basis.”
“Since I’ve been here, I’ve seen a product go from an infant state all the way to market approval. Glaukos has a very strong pipeline, so we have products that are under our belt right now which are following the same path.
