Our mission:  OER provides the corporate framework for NIH research administration, ensuring scientific integrity, public accountability, and effective stewardship of the NIH extramural research portfolio.

Meet Us in Person


We provide the leadership, oversight, tools and guidance needed to administer and manage NIH grants policies and
operations. Our resources can offer you vital assistance in applying for funding, the first step in reaching your research
goals. I encourage you to contact our office or email me directly anytime.

Whatever your role—researcher, reviewer, mentor, administrator, or other—your contributions help advance science.
In that sense, we are all collaborators in the noble mission of saving lives and improving health.
