I serve as a scientific review officer (SRO) for the Chartered Subcommittees Review Section at the NIDDK. My research interests include immunology, with a focus on immunotoxicology. My work supports the Review Branch, which evaluates applications in study sections organized by Institute staff. The types of applications I review and have reviewed include those submitted in response to Requests For Applications, training and mentored career awards, fellowships, program projects, and multicenter clinical trials. The grant applications that I review are primarily in the areas of diabetes, endocrinology, and metabolism; and secondarily in the areas of kidney, urology, and hematology.
