This summer has been a time of growth for the Healthcare Delivery Research Program (HDRP) and we are very pleased to have recruited outstanding individuals to fill some of our vacancies. In early August, Dr. Janet de Moor was promoted to the HDRP Deputy Associate Director position. In this role, she will provide support and expertise to me and the program at large on developing and implementing long-term scientific goals, the annual budget cycle and processes, and communications and planning. Janet will also be working to enhance connections and collaborations across NCI and with external partners. Prior to accepting the Deputy Associate Director position, Janet served as a Program Director within HDRP.

HDRP also saw the addition of three new Program Directors: Dr. Jennifer Croswell and Dr. Michael Halpern, who both joined our Healthcare Assessment Research Branch in June, and Dr. Bryan Kim, who joined our Outcomes Research Branch in early September. Jennifer, Michael, and Brian have hit the ground running by contributing their scientific expertise and getting up to speed on activities and initiatives within their respective branches and across the program.

Finally, we welcomed several new staff serving in program management and support roles, including Joshua Medel, Crystal Reed, Dusuba Sesay, Hanna Abuhay, and Brianna Jacobs, and we said hellos and goodbyes to many talented summer fellows who we can already tell have bright futures ahead!

I welcome you to reach out to me, Janet, or any of our other staff to discuss your research endeavors or to learn more about the work of HDRP. A full staff listing is available on our website.

A NOSI describes specific topics of interest and will direct applicants to one or more active funding opportunity announcements for application submission.
