Laura Mariani

Senior Associate

Laura’s background as a scientist helps to enhance the firm's knowledge of healthcare and STEM disciplines. Since 2016, she has worked on a variety of searches for senior administrators, deans, and department chairs in healthcare, scientific research, and higher education. In addition, she has organized recruiting events at several client universities to enlist other recent PhDs to join our growing healthcare team. With experience as a biomedical researcher, Laura has first-hand knowledge of the research funding and regulatory environment surrounding National Institutes of Health grants as well as other federal and private sponsors. Her previous experience includes participating in a science policy workshop on Capitol Hill, communicating novel research findings through an interdisciplinary teaching fellowship, and advocating for gender-inclusive university policies as an executive board member of Emory Women in Neuroscience. Laura's consultative approach to search means she is constantly learning about new organizations and business practices. She appreciates her continued work with scientists, physicians, and educators, and her efforts at our firm support their missions.
