Current Responsibilities and Activities

As chief of NIDDK’s Review Branch, I am responsible for the scientific oversight and management of applications evaluated in study sections organized by Review staff.  The types of applications reviewed include those submitted in response to Requests For Applications, training and mentored career awards, fellowships, program projects, and multicenter clinical trials.

As part of my responsibilities, I have participated in a number of NIDDK and trans-NIH committees.  I have represented the Institute as a guest speaker on NIH policy and review procedures at many academic institutions.

I also am active in minority affairs initiatives with Hispanic children and teenagers within and outside of the NIH.
