Office of the Director

Eric Green
The Office of the Director oversees general operations, administration and communications for the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). This office provides overall leadership; sets policies; develops scientific, fiscal and management strategies; assists in governing the ethical behavior of its employees, and coordinates genomic research for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with other federal, private and international programs.

The office also supports international meetings, workshops and other activities essential for advancing genomics research.

The NHGRI Reorganization

To effectively oversee NHGRI's complex scientific activities and to better manage the many associated programs now conducted by the institute, NHGRI will implement a new structure that reorganizes the institute from three components — Office of the Director, Division of Extramural Research, and Division of Intramural Research — to seven.
