UCSD’s Georgia Robins Sadler, BSN, MBA, PhD, recently took over as chair of the National Cancer Institute’s Study Section G — one of 10 such groups.
She is a clinical professor in the Department of Surgery and associate director for UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, where she directs the Center’s Community Outreach program.
The NCI’s Scientific Review Groups are the first step in the peer review process for scientists seeking support for their research undertakings. Their applications are evaluated for the significance of the problem to be addressed, the researchers’ qualifications and experiences to accomplish the proposed research, the innovativeness of the proposed research, the strength of the proposed research methodology, and proposed strategies for disseminating the findings that evolve from the research.
Sadler has been a member of this study section for two terms based upon her own success as a public health researcher. She has received numerous research grants from the NCI, as well as grants from the California Endowment, the California Breast Cancer Research Program, the Komen for the Cure Foundation, the Alliance HealthCare Foundation, and the San Diego Foundation.
