Ms. Nemes has been a Program Analyst with the Office of Intramural Research since 2016. She currently supports the Deputy Director for Intramural Clinical Research (DDICR) and the OIR Office of Communications, and she is responsible for the Continuing Medical Education program for various lecture series. Previously, she helped establish the original Office of Research Support and Compliance, including procuring initial office space, hiring of staff and establishment of policies and procedures for its operations, and provided support for its data management and data analysis functions. She assisted the Office of Human Subjects Research Protection (OHSRP) as it took on an expanded role, transforming from a small policy-setting office to one that oversaw Policy, Institutional Review Board (IRB) Operations, Compliance and Training. As OHSRP’s responsibilities increased, and NIH began to consolidate its IRB operations under OHSRP, she worked to procure temporary office space and furnishings to accommodate the growing staff while working with ORS and contractors on the design and construction of permanent offices. She also assisted OHSRP in converting its current SOPs into more than thirty policies necessary to provide guidance on, and to implement the changes required by, both the reorganization of the NIH IRBs and the implementation in January 2019 of recently revised HHS regulations on human subjects protections (“The Common Rule”, 45 CFR Part 46).
In 2006, Ms. Nemes started at NIH in the NIH Branch of the Office of General Counsel, where she oversaw day to day operations. She has received numerous awards for her work, including the HHS Office of General Counsel Honor Award, the OD Honor Award, and the NIH Director’s Award. Prior to coming to NIH, she worked as a health law paralegal for a major Washington, D.C. law firm. She received her paralegal degree from Georgetown University.
