Bringing research experience to drug discovery and development


Caitlyn’s interest in abuse liability research together with drug development and regulatory science attracted her to Pinney Associates, and us to her. As a junior associate, she supports project teams working on:

  • Abuse potential assessments
  • Eight factor analyses
  • Regulatory submissions
  • Clinical development


Prior to joining Pinney Associates in 2021, Caitlyn earned a B.S. in psychology from the University of Maryland before heading to Johns Hopkins, where she joined the Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit (BPRU) and Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research—first as a research program assistant, then as a coordinator and regulatory specialist working on HAP studies. She has a keen interest in abuse liability research, as well as overall drug development and regulatory science, and has experience creating and maintaining INDs.
