Current Responsibilities and Activities

I am a scientific review officer at the NIDDK.  My expertise includes cell biology, basic and applied neuroscience, structural and functional imaging, angiogenesis, translational research, and clinical trials.  At the NIDDK Scientific Review Branch, I have been responsible for organizing and conducting review meetings for the following multiple mechanisms:  DP3, P01, R01, U01, and U54, in various areas of endocrinology, nephrology, urology, and digestive diseases.  I can potentially conduct the initial peer review of specific research applications, including contract proposals, applications for centers, program projects, scientific meetings, training and career development, and applications responding to Funding Opportunity Announcements published by the NIDDK and other Institutes.
