Branch Chief DBDR


The Organization

The Division of Blood Diseases & Resources, NHLBI (DBDR) is a leader in research on the causes, prevention, and treatment of non-neoplastic blood diseases. DBDR assumes a major responsibility in ensuring the adequacy and safety of the nation’s blood supply. It also supports scientific advances in stem cell biology and new gene and cell-based therapies developed to repair and regenerate human tissues and organs. The DBDR is divided into three branches that are structured to facilitate team science in priority areas of blood science. Together, the branches foster the training of the next generation of blood scientists, coordinate blood research activities, and promote communication across the Division, the NHLBI, the NIH, and partner federal agencies.

The Molecular, Cellular, and Systems Blood Science Branch (MCSB) seeks to advance discovery science focused on explaining the physiology and pathophysiology of blood, bone marrow, and blood vessels. This Branch promotes a systems biology approach to understanding the critical role of blood, bone marrow, and vascular endothelium in animal and human organs and organisms. It also applies fundamental genetic, proteomic, and metabolomic tools to better understand hematologic physiology and pathophysiology.

The Role


The ideal candidate will have research experience and knowledge of molecular cellular and systems science research that is relevant to blood disorders. The Branch Chief will direct and manage a complex scientific portfolio of research and provide oversight, support and stimulation of fundamental basic research and early stage laboratory translation of the biology of blood, the blood forming elements and the interface between each of the latter with other cellular and organ systems, discovery science focused on the explication of the physiology and pathophysiology of blood, bone marrow and blood vessels, and stimulation of the application of fundamental genetic, proteomic and metabolomic tools of blood science.
