Colleen Barros has been named NIH deputy director for management, effective May 30. She will also be chief financial officer for NIH.

Barros holds a bachelor of science degree from the University of Maryland and a master's degree from American University in management of scientific and technical information systems. Among her honors are the Presidential Rank Award in 2003, the PHS Superior Service Award in 1995 and four NIH Director's Awards.
