Dr. Gillespie has over 30 years of experience in oncology. She initiated, managed, and directed much of the infrastructure development for supporting the design and implementation of oncology clinical research at Winship Cancer Institute and the Atlanta VA Medical Center. She served as Winship's deputy director for administration during the NCI P30 application and site visit that resulted in Winship being named an NCI Designated Cancer Center in 2009.

Her clinical research experience encompasses early phase I trials, multicenter phase III investigations, and population-based studies in cancer prevention, screening, and treatment. Her current research focuses on patient decision-making regarding cancer therapies, barriers to clinical trial accrual, health disparities, and outcomes, and is regularly funded by such agencies as the NIH, NCI, CDC, and the VA.
