Christine Densmore, M.S.

Program Director, Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition

Current Responsibilities & Activities

As institute coordinator and program director of the Small Business Research programs in the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition (DDN) at the NIDDK, I manage the small business research portfolio, which includes the Small Business Innovative Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs.  These programs are intended to support innovative research conducted by small businesses that has the potential for commercialization.  This portfolio encompasses basic and clinical research, as well as the development of devices and web-based educational tools directed at nutrition and obesity.

I serve as program director for the DDN Institutional Training Program (T32 mechanism).  This program provides funding to institutions across the country to support predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees in gastrointestinal, liver, and nutrition research.

I also am budget coordinator for the DDN, as well as the R13 coordinator.
