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.
