- Regulatory review
Tim holds a Ph.D. in Microbiology and Immunology. He is an experienced microbiologist, lead scientist, and program manager with a wealth of successful proposal writing and management experience for HHS and NSF grants and contracts. He has experience in study design for molecular biology, immunology, biosafety, and lead-candidate preclinical studies, as well as animal and replacement models of infectious diseases. He has more than 18 years of experience leading large government-funded programs including the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases, one of the largest microbial infectious disease research biorepositories. Among other work, Tim has supported malaria, tuberculosis, SARS-CoV-2, and select agent research studies through NIH and CDC funding.
As a principal investigator on multiple grants and contracts, Tim has managed and directed research laboratory teams of up to 65 staff conducting government research at a major non-profit institute. He has served as Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) chair and as Research Integrity Officer. Tim has received training in project management (PMI) and Six Sigma Yellow Belt skills and is also versed in Quality Management Systems (QMS) under International Standards Organization (ISO) guidelines.
Tim’s research projects supported funded research projects for performing assay development and characterization for microbial cultures of bacteria, viruses, parasitic protists, and fungi. Projects included preclinical development of candidate antimicrobial compounds for bacteria, viruses, and parasites, and also supported testing, validation, and verification of inactivation of select agent microbes. His research citations include manuscripts published in journals including PLoS One, Molecular Microbiology, and the Journal of Cell Science.
