Welcome Morgan Graham, IRC’s New Employee

Hi everyone! My name is Morgan Graham and I’m from Fort Wayne, Indiana, the Hoosier State.


The term “Hoosier” remains a matter of debate within the state [1], but “Hoosier” was in general use by the 1840s, having been popularized by Richmond resident John Finley’s 1833 poem “The Hoosier’s Nest” [2].


I graduated from Indiana University Bloomington. As an undergrad, I worked as a research assistant and just knew that I wanted to be involved in research once I graduated.

I am a clinical research coordinator (CRC II) within the IRC and will be working on a few of the different research studies. I will be helping with various aspects within the clinical research studies, collecting data, informing participants about study objectives, and obtaining informed consents.

My hobbies include traveling, thrifting, and exploring new parks around the area with my fiancé and our Chihuahua-Terrier, Louie.
