Thomas G. TurleyNIH's grants management community created the first-ever grants management advisory committee Award of Excellence to honor Thomas G. Turley, chief, NHLBI Grants Operations Branch. The award comes with a plaque and $10,000, contributed by every institute and center, and OD's Office of Extramural Research, and heartfelt thanks for Turley's years of innovation, dedication, and leadership. Often done on his own time, Turley's work brought NIH's grants management into the computer age. As his award citation notes, his efforts date back to the early 1980's, "before most NIH staff acknowledged or recognized the value of computer applications." Among his many achievements is the design of the "Grants Management Infonet" on the World Wide Web.
