David Saslowsky, Ph.D.

Responsibilities & Activities

As Deputy Director of the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition (DDN), I help coordinate the development of initiatives and research priorities and also facilitate overall administrative management of the Division. Additionally, I serve as the Chief of the Data Sciences Group for the Division.

I also serve as a program director, overseeing a subset of the Career Development ("K") awards for DDN Division. These awards support individuals with a Ph.D., M.D., or an equivalent degree to receive training in both basic and clinical research related to digestive and hepatobiliary diseases, nutrition, obesity, and pancreatic diseases. In conjunction with this program, I coordinate a small grant program for K01/K08/K23 recipients (R03 award mechanism), which is meant to amplify the candidate's research progress in areas that will lead to independent research project grant funding (e.g. R01). Additionally, I coordinate the NIH Loan Repayment program for NIDDK and DDN and serve as the Program Official for the Intestinal Stem Cell Consortium (ISCC).
