I serve as the Director of the Office of Research Evaluation and Operations (OREO) within the Division of Extramural Activities (DEA). I provide oversight of the NIDDK’s referral and disease coding/reporting functions, and of the program evaluation and analysis capacity. I also oversee the NIDDK’s Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) publication process. Further, I provide expertise in data management, sharing policies, and implementation, as well as participate in trans-NIH committees in this area.
Key functions the office supports include:
- Categorical disease/organ system coding/reporting
- Program analysis support and reporting
- Application referral
- NIDDK Advisory Council meetings
- Publication of NIDDK FOAs in the NIH Guide
