Jamie Arnott, R.N.

Senior Project Director

Jamie Arnott has been conducting clinical studies for more than 20 years in a broad range of therapeutic areas, focusing on rare disease studies since at Rho. Jamie has provided oversight and full management support for over 10 rare disease studies, including three U.S. and global programs.

Ms. Arnott’s rare disease experience, including cystic fibrosis research, has included treatment with oral therapy, as well as aerosolized treatment and subcutaneous injections. These studies ranged from Phase 1 to 3 and have included inpatient components, telephone visits/assessments, serial PK collections, and quality of life assessments. Jamie has extensive experience from both the CRO and sponsor perspectives’ in the oversight and management of clinical trial operations and outsourcing. Ms. Arnott and the team at Rho facilitate quarterly calls with the CFF TDN to solicit continual feedback from TDN sites and continually ensure that Rho is best able to support the clients and sites.

Prior to joining Rho, Ms. Arnott was the Director of Clinical Trial Operations for a biotechnology company where she provided oversight and management for all clinical activity for up to four concurrent INDs, including multiple orphan indications.

Ms. Arnott received her undergraduate degree in Nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon graduation, she worked at UNC Hospitals, performing direct patient care, which included facilitating subjects’ participation and sample collections in investigator-initiated trials on the bone marrow transplant unit for 6 years.

Why Rare Disease?

“Working in rare disease, particularly Cystic Fibrosis, I am constantly impressed with how motivated the patients are to support research even if it may not directly benefit them today. And these patients have often been dealing with the disease for many years, so seeing the families involved in the care and goals of research continues to motivate me.”

This is what drives Jamie:

“Either directly or indirectly, being in a position to help other people is what drives me to work each and every day at Rho. Helping our clients design trials that ensure clear answers at the conclusion is a passion for sure. While all studies may not have positive outcomes, having a clear strategy and decision path forward with unambiguous results is critical for our clients’ success, informing them of every correct next step to take. I also love training and mentoring more junior team members at Rho – while they think they are learning from me, I know that their fresh perspective ensures that I continue to learn and experience new ways of leading trials.”
