    I serve as the Administrative Director of the Oklahoma Clinical and Translational Science Institute. I have been involved in basic biomedical research for more than 20 years and patient-oriented research in pediatric infectious diseases and bioinformatics for more than 15 years. In this role, I function as the Deputy Director for Administration for the Oklahoma Shared Clinical and Translational Resources, an IDeA-CTR award from the National Institute for General Medical Sciences that is dedicated to building research infrastructure in the state. I am also a Co-Principal Investigator for Healthy Hearts for Oklahoma, the Oklahoma cooperative for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's Evidence Now initiative. I have previously held dual appointments as a research professor at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and as a teaching professor and department chairman at Oklahoma Christian University. I have had graduate training in a variety of business subjects, including accounting, operations and project management, marketing, and finance. My work as the Administrative Director of the OCTSI allows me to combine my scientific research background, business education, and university leadership experiences to support the institute in both a scientific and administrative capacity.
