Zlotnik Appointed MBRS Chief at NIGMS
Dr. Hinda Zlotnik, a microbiologist with extensive experience in grant and program administration, has been appointed chief of the Minority Biomedical Research Support Branch of the NIGMS Division of Minority Opportunities in Research (MORE). She has been working as a program director in the MORE division since 1999. She came to NIGMS from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine in San Juan, where she was director of the Office of Sponsored Research and a professor in the department of microbiology and medical zoology. During her academic tenure, Zlotnik's research focused on pathogenic actinomycetes (bacteria related to those that cause strep infections). In addition, she was active in training underrepresented minority students for careers in science, a major aim of the MORE division. In 1995, she spent 6 months as an NIH extramural associate, performing assignments with the NIGMS Minority Access to Research Careers Branch and with NIDCD.
