Please join us in congratulating Jill Maron, MD and Executive Director of our Mother and Infant Research Institute for being invited to serve on the Pregnancy and Neonatology Study Section, Center for Scientific Review, National Institutes of Health, for the term July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2023. The implications and importance of this activity was well summarized by Noni Byrnes, PhD, Director, Center for Scientific Review: “Members are selected on the basis of their demonstrated competence and achievement in their scientific discipline as evidenced by the quality of research accomplishments, publications in scientific journals, and other significant scientific activities, achievements and honors. Service on a study section also requires mature judgment and objectivity as well as the ability to work effectively in a group, qualities we believe Dr. Maron will bring to this important task….” Congratulations Dr. Maron!
