Join the Office of the Vice President for Research to hear Dr. Kathie Olsen discuss how your innovative and creative research ideas can often be focused to meet the requirements of the missions of different agencies. How the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and sometimes Department of Defense (DOD) programs may have goals that align with eachother and your research program. She will discuss using the similarities and differences between these agencies, their missions and their review processes to create a better proposal. QUESTIONS? contact Dr. Sunny Boyd at (boyd.1@nd.edu)

Dr. Kathie Olsen


Kathie L. Olsen, Ph.D., is the Founder and Managing Director of ScienceWorks, a consulting firm that helps academic institutions, educational coalitions, companies, and research entities create successful, well-supported science programs and projects. ScienceWorks is the culmination of a distinguished career that began with Dr. Olsen’s significant research on the neural basis of behavior, and grew into leadership positions in major governmental and scientific agencies. Most recently as Deputy Director and Chief Operating Officer of the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Federal Government’s premier organization for funding basic research, Dr. Olsen directed an annual budget of $6.5 billion, created major new initiatives, and served on key scientific organizations worldwide. At the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President, she was Associate Director for Science. There, she coordinated the Federal Government’s vast array of research agencies and integrated their activities with non-governmental, private sector, academic, and international partners to articulate and implement national and global strategies for dealing with the fundamental challenges of the 21st century. As Chief Scientist at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Dr. Olsen was the primary link between NASA and the Nation’s science establishment, creating academic and agency partnerships and serving as the primary advisor on NASA science budgets. Earlier in her career she was Senior Staff Associate for the NSF’s Science and Technology Centers. She initially came to NSF after having taught and conducted research at the State University of New York, Stony Brook, where she received her first National Institutes of Health (NIH) R01 award while still in her 20s.
