I am program director for the Career Development, Research Fellowship, and Digestive Disease Research Core Centers programs in the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition (DDN). As such, I am responsible for administering DDN’s portfolio of individual fellowships (F32, F30) and Career Development Awards (K01, K08, K23, K24, K25, K99) in all areas of research supported by the Division. I administer DDN’s R03 for K-awards portfolio and education grants (R25) and manage the minority supplemental slot program for training grants. I am responsible for trans-NIDDK medical student training, involving both short-term training of medical students (T35 portfolio) and the Medical Student Research Training Program. As part of the NIDDK Training Program Directors team, I help organize a workshop for our K-awardees every 18 months. Other professional duties include representing the NIDDK on the NIH Training Advisory Committee, providing outreach through speaking engagements at relevant career development or funding opportunity workshops, and serving as content manager for the training and career development pages of the NIDDK website.
