Donna Shelley, MD, PhD, has accepted an invitation to serve as a member of the National Institutes of Health's Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health Study Section, Center for Scientific Review, for the term beginning July 01, 2015 and ending June 30, 2019. 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.

According to Richard Nakamura, PhD, director of the Center for Scientific Review: "Membership on a study section represents a major commitment of professional time and energy as well as a unique opportunity to contribute to the national biomedical research effort. Study sections review grant applications submitted to the NIH, make recommendations on these applications to the appropriate NIH national advisory council or board, and survey the status of research in their fields of science. These functions are of great value to medical and allied research in this country."
