Meet Your Presenter:

Dr. Dorothy Lewis, received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. She then did an NIH supported postdoctoral ellowship at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Abuquerque under the mentorship of Dr. Noel Warner. Dr. Lewis published her first paper related to T cell subset changes in HIV patients in 1985 and shortly thereafter acquired her own independent NIH funding. She also wrote a shared instrumentation grant for a new flow cytometry that was funded in the late 1980’s and began to participate in study sections. She has had continuous NIH funding since 1985, experiencing both times of multiple grants and times of reduced funding. She served on the NIAID council from 2002-2006, on the DAIDS subcommittee, which exposed Dr. Lewis to policy matters and how topics are chosen by program. She currently is a member of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2007-2011) and became chair in 2009. She is thus very familiar with the new NIH application system and new methods of review, which focus greatly on IMPACT.
