James Goldenring, M.D., Ph.D., has been appointed to the Gastrointestinal Cell and Molecular Biology Study Section of the Center for Scientific Review at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

His four-year term begins July 1.

The study section reviews applications for grants to study the cell and molecular biology of gastrointestinal and liver function.

Scientists are invited to serve on the study section based on “the quality of (their) research accomplishments, publications in scientific journals and other significant scientific activities, achievements and honors,” Toni Scarpa, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Center for Scientific Review, wrote in announcing Goldenring's appointment.

Since his arrival at Vanderbilt in 2002 from the Medical College of Georgia, Goldenring has co-authored 39 publications, including reports detailing the origin of precancerous gastric metaplasia.

Goldenring is the Paul Sanger Chair of Experimental Surgery, professor of Surgery and of Cell & Developmental Biology, and vice chairman for Research in the Section of Surgical Sciences.
