Terry Rogers Bishop, Ph.D.

Program Director, Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases

Current Responsibilities and Activities

I direct several NIDDK hematology programs that support research on hematopoietic stem cells and their differentiation into blood cells.  In particular, my portfolio includes developmental hematopoiesis, erythropoiesis, globin gene regulation, heme biosynthesis, and cell differentiation.  I also oversee the Centers of Excellence in Molecular Hematology (P30 grants), Hematology Training and Career Development, and some hematology conference grants.  For the Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases, I oversee its Loan Repayment Program and the MERIT Program.

​Research Programs

Erythropoiesis and Hemoglobin
The NIDDK Erythropoiesis and Hemoglobin program supports work on the molecular and cellular biological pathways involved in erythroid cell differentiation

Hematology HIV/AIDS
The NIDDK Hematology HIV/AIDS program supports basic and translational studies of HIV-associated hematologic dysfunction

Hematopoiesis and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology
The NIDDK Hematopoiesis and Hematopoietic Stem Cell Biology program focuses on understanding the basic cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the production and function of blood cells

Iron and Heme Metabolism, Iron Chelation
The NIDDK Iron and Heme Metabolism, Iron Chelation program supports work on the regulation of iron absorption, utilization, and storage

Molecular Hematology Centers
The NIDDK Molecular Hematology Centers enhance and extend the effectiveness of research related to hematology by encouraging collaboration among investigators from relevant disciplines
