The competition for federal support has never been stiffer.  NIH comes up with new opportunities and novel mechanisms at a dizzying pace.  Today’s biomedical problems increasingly require multi-disciplinary team science and novel (yet feasible!) approaches.  How to cope?  Good, honest, informed communication is an important key to success in the fast-paced world of biomedical research.  Get the inside scoop on writing an award-winning grant from an NIH Program Director.

 Rosemarie Hunziker, Ph.D. is the Director of Tissue Engineering/Regenerative Medicine, Biomaterials and Medical Devices at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).  In that capacity she has programmatic oversight of discovery and applied research grants.  Dr. Hunziker brings a diverse background to this broad sphere of R&D.  She has education, training and experience in microbiology, immunogenetics and immunochemistry, developmental biology, animal husbandry, molecular biology, microsystems, tissue engineering/regenerative medicine and stem cells, biomaterials, and technology transfer.  She is committed to nurturing discovery and realizing the practical benefits of the exciting developments at the forefront of cell-based tools and therapies.
