Carol Joanne Braun (59) passed away peacefully on April 22, 2016 of complications related to angiosarcoma. Carol will be remembered for how she embraced life with enthusiasm and passion, bravely and confidently facing challeges without comBraun.jpgplaint and serving as an inspiration to countless others. Loving wife to Dr. Charles Flexner and mother of Sara Lindsey (Mike Ciulla), James Flexner (Karen), Bill Flexner (Riah Werner), Chris Flexner (Allison Lucchese). Beloved daughter of the late Dorothy and Fredrick Braun. Dear sister to Janet Braun. Carol was born in Cincinnati with a serious birth defect that led to the early amputation of her left arm.

A 1975 graduate of Finneytown High School in Cincinnati, Carol was a varsity athlete in softball, basketball and tennis (earning MVP honors) and a member of the National Honor Society. She was included in a 1970 issue of Sports Illustrated for her softball prowess. Carol graduated cum laude from The Ohio State University, College of Pharmacy in 1980 where she was elected to the Rho Chi academic honor society and Mortar Board, a national scholastic and activities honorary organization. She graduated from The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1984 and completed her residency in internal medicine at The Ohio State University Medical Center. After her residency, Carol worked at the US Food and Drug Administration in Rockville, Maryland, as one of the first Medical Officers approving new drugs for HIV/AIDS. While at the FDA, Carol also completed fellowship training in Clinical Pharmacology at Georgetown University, where she served as an Assistant Professor. After 11 years at the FDA, Dr. Braun worked in the pharmaceutical industry for AkaRx, Inc. and GloboMax LLC, later ICON Development Solutions. In 2008, she co-founded SAJE Consulting LLC, a pharmaceutical consulting firm, with her colleague Dr. Helen Pentikis, and also served as Chief Medical Officer of Symbiomix. Dr. Braun served as Vice President and member of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and was recognized as an expert in early phase drug development. Carol was inducted into the Finneytown Local Schools Hall of Fame, and received the Distinguished Alumni Award from The Ohio State University College of Pharmacy. Carol was active at St. Bartholomew's Epsicopal Church in Baltimore, and supported many feminist causes throughout her life. She was an enthusiastic supporter of Ohio State athletics, in addition to local athletic teams, and an avid world traveler.
