Diane DiEuliis received her Ph.D. in biological sciences at the University of Delaware. She then completed a research fellowship at the National Institutes of Health intramural research program in cellular neurobiology, focusing on the molecular and morphological features of neuronal cells. She specialized in light, confocal, and electron microscopy techniques. She completed a fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, studying the cellular aspects of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, in particular, the role of alpha synuclein in the Parkinson’s disease pathway.
Following her laboratory research, Dr. DiEuliis became a program director at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, where she began managing the Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease portfolio of research grants and programs. She developed several strategic research plans for Parkinson’s disease, coordinating with the Department of Defense and Veteran’s Administration programs, which helped to expand and diversify the field of federal research on Parkinson’s. She now maintains many of these planning programs annually, and manages the Udall Centers program.
Currently Dr. DiEuliis is also working as a senior policy advisor in the President’s Office of Science and Technology Policy. Her policy focus is within the life sciences, and she is the staff director for several subcommittees within the Committee on Science, including research business models, human subjects research, and the science of science policy.
