What does a Scientific Director at a Foundation do?
Author : Yung S. Lie, Ph.D.
I have yet to come up with a perfectly clear and concise description of my job. The reason for this is that what I do changes from day to day and from week to week. The official description of my job as Scientific Director is: “overseeing the Foundation’s three grant programs ($10 million annual budget) and serving as the primary liaison between current and former award recipients, the Foundation, and its private and corporate sponsors.” This encompasses much of what I do, but it really just skims the surface.
