Carter recently joined the National Institute of General Medical Sciences as a program director in the Division of Genetics and Developmental Biology, where he will manage grants dealing with chromosomal organization and gene regulation. He is a molecular biologist who comes to NIGMS from the Center for Scientific Review, where he had served as a scientific review administrator since 1995. At CSR, he reviewed research grant and fellowship applications in the areas of cell and molecular biology and biotechnology resources. Carter has also maintained an interest in science education outreach. Under an educational supplement grant from the National Science Foundation, he created the KEYS (Knowledge and Experience for Young Scientists) Outreach Program to promote interactions between minority scientists and elementary school students.
Einstein Joins CSR
Dr. Gillian Einstein has joined the Center for Scientific Review as scientific review administrator of study section 2 in the molecular, cellular, and developmental neurosciences integrated review group. This section reviews grant applications pertaining to neurodegenerative diseases. Einstein did a postdoctoral fellowship in the department of neurobiology and physiology at Northwestern University. She then went to Duke University as a research associate in the anatomy department, becoming an assistant research professor in the department of neurobiology in 1989. There, her research was primarily on Alzheimer's disease and the effects of estrogens on the aging brain. Einstein was also involved with student programs and was a gifted teacher she received the Duke Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Teaching Award.
Nunn Accepts CSR Post
Dr. Michael Nunn is the new scientific review administrator of the molecular, cellular, and developmental neurosciences 6 study section in the Center for Scientific Review. This study section reviews applications pertaining to developmental neurobiology. As a pre- and postdoctoral student in the department of molecular biology at the University of California at Berkeley, he analyzed the genetic structures of avian and murine leukemia and sarcoma viruses, and discovered the ets oncogene. After 3 years postdoctoral training at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, he next spent 3 years as a staff scientist at Pharmacia Genetic Engineering. In 1994, he became a senior staff fellow in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology, NIMH, where he investigated the role of a viral gene product in the pathogenesis of HIV-1.
