  • Meet Your Expert: Dr. Dorothy Lewis

    Dr. Dorothy Lewis

    Dr. Dorothy Lewis, Professor of Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Health Science Center has a 30-year history of writing grant applications, including experience with recent changes made by NIH. Her successful track record for winning grants has given her a valuable “in the trenches” perspective that can benefit you, at whichever stage you find yourself.

    She received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona in Tucson. She then pursued an NIH-supported postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico, School of Medicine in Albuquerque. In 1985, she published her first paper related to T-cell subset changes in HIV patients and acquired her own independent NIH funding. She has maintained continuous NIH funding since 1985, experiencing both times of multiple grants and times of reduced funding.

    She just retired as a member of the Training and Workforce Diversity Study Section C, called TWD-C (2012-2016) and was former chair of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2009-2011). She helps to teach grant writing at the graduate student level at Univ of Texas and at Baylor College of Medicine and serves as an ad-hoc reviewer on many applications.
