I facilitate pediatric research efforts with the ultimate goal of expanding the extramurally funded child health research portfolio.  As a trained basic scientist-turned research development professional, I understand first-hand the culture and general mindset within the scientific research community.  It is with this understanding that I am able to develop programs and provide resources that fulfill research scientist specific needs aimed to enhance the likelihood of successful competition for extramural research grant dollars.  This includes the development and management of equipment and service based cores, education on research grant application strategies, alignment with appropriate funding mechanisms and facilitation of research collaborations through formal and informal programs and networking.
