I am a Scientific Review Officer for the Chartered NIH-NIDDK Digestive Diseases and Nutrition  Subcommittee.  The committee is charged with reviewing career development and institutional training grant applications in various areas of digestive diseases and nutrition.  My primary responsibility is to organize peer review meetings to evaluate the scientific merit of applications submitted in response to funding opportunity announcements issued by the NIDDK and other institutes and centers at the National Institutes of Health.

My general research interests have been in (i) epithelial cell physiology, (ii) gene therapy and therapeutics, and (iii) the intracellular trafficking of protein toxins.
