Peter Knox Headshot
Senior Director, Research
The Life Raft Group, Wayne, NJ, USA

Peter is responsible for oversight of all research activities at the Life Raft Group (LRG), a non-profit that has been advocating for a rare form of cancer (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor, or GIST) for nearly 20 years. In particular, Peter and the LRG have been involved in the production and analysis of Real World Data (RWD) and Real World Evidence (RWE) through a patient registry, web-based side effect management platform, and other data products aimed at both patients and clinicians/researchers, and possess significant experience working with various HEOR professionals in the pharmaceutical industry. Prior to working in patient advocacy, Peter worked for various technology and web firms where he gained valuable knowledge on both the user perspective and how technology can be applied to the current digital health paradigm.  A holder of a Masters in Public Policy with a concentration in quantitative methods, economics, and health policy from Rutgers University, Peter is especially proud to be working with ISPOR’s newly formed RWE special interest group, where he will enthusiastically offer his knowledge of the patient and caregiver perspective.
