Dear NHLBI Colleagues,
It is with bittersweet emotions that I write to let you know that I will be leaving the NHLBI/NIH to take on a new position as President and CEO of Brigham and Women’s/Faulkner Hospitals in Boston, effective January 1, 2010.
It has been my extraordinary privilege and honor to be part of this remarkable Institute and the NIH community for the past 10 years. Never have I met such dedicated and talented individuals who are so devoted to fostering research discoveries and translating them to improve the health and lives of individuals around the world. Your commitment to public service has been inspiring.
Over the next few weeks, I will be working with Drs. Collins and Kington to prepare a smooth transition for the NHLBI. The NHLBI is in a strong position, thanks to your talents and hard work. I am so very proud of what we have accomplished together over the past five years.
I thank each and every one of you for your service, your gifts to the NHLBI, and for what you have taught me. I hope to stay connected to you through continued service to the NHLBI and NIH as a private citizen.
With my affection and very best wishes,
