Program Officer

Qing "Sara" Lin, Ph.D.


NHLBI will have substantial programmatic involvement that is above and beyond the normal stewardship role in awards.

  1. NHLBI will attend and participate as a voting member in all meetings of the Steering Committee.
  2. NHLBI will serve as a liaison, helping to coordinate activities among and for the awardees, including acting as a liaison to the NIH, and as an information resource for the awardees about lung development research activities.
  3. NHLBI will review the scientific progress of the LungMAP consortium, access for compliance with operating policies developed by the Steering Committee, and may recommend to the NHLBI to withhold support, suspend, or phase out an award for lack of scientific progress or failure to adhere to policies established by the Steering Committee.
