HCTU Pfenning, Natalie

Natalie Pfenning

Clinical Research Manager


I’ve been with the team seven years as of April 2023.

Prior to joining the HCTU, I graduated in May 2010 from the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!) with a BA in Human Biology. Following graduation, I worked at KU Med in a basic science laboratory studying traumatic brain injury then moved into the clinical research field in March 2013, specializing in islet cell transplantation research at Northwestern University in Chicago. In 2016, we decided to move from Chicago to Denver and I landed a CRC role with the HCTU and have loved learning the hematology/oncology landscape over the last several years!

Outside of work, I spend the majority of time hanging out with my family- my husband Will, our dogs Berkeley and Hobbs, our son, Theo, and daughter, Elsie. We love exploring Colorado whether it’s hot or cold, spending time on the slopes in winter or hiking and enjoying afternoons on the patio in the summer.
