Dr. Manolio directs NHGRI’s Division of Genomic Medicine, where she leads programs to develop and implement genomic applications in clinical care. She came to NHGRI from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute where she was heavily involved in large cohort studies such as the Cardiovascular Health Study, the Framingham Heart Study, and the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis. She moved to NHGRI in 2005 to lead efforts in applying genomic technologies to population research, including the Electronic Medical Records and Genetics (eMERGE) Network, the NHGRI Genome-Wide Association Catalog, the Implementing Genomics in Practice (IGNITE) Network, and the Clinical Genome (ClinGen) Resource. She continues to practice and teach internal medicine at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.  She is the author of over 270 research reports and has research interests in genome-wide association studies of complex diseases, ethnic differences in disease risk, and incorporating genomic findings into clinical care.
