In her role as Chief Administrative Officer, Moen provides programmatic, administrative and operational leadership for the Duke CTSI and Duke’s CTSA grant.

Moen provides programmatic guidance and support to the individual components of the CTSA grant based on the National Center for Research Resources’s goals for the CTSA program as well as approaches being implemented at other CTSA institutions. She facilitates and fosters collaboration and communication among the various CTSA components and with other research programs in the institution. She serves as an internal expert resource regarding the programmatic requirements of the CTSA grant and linked award mechanisms, and represents Duke on various National CTSA Consortium Workgroups. She oversees the preparation of the annual progress reports to the National Institutes of Health, the further development of our evaluation program, and the coordination of our External Advisory Committee meetings. Finally, she identifies, develops, and implements new programmatic, administrative and operational infrastructure functions to support the CTSA grant as well as other Duke programs in clinical and translational research.

Moen came back to Duke after having served as the Associate Director of the Office of Clinical Research at the University of Minnesota Academic Health Center since 2005. In this role, she managed the integration of four previously decentralized units into one comprehensive, full-service clinical research infrastructure. She managed large-scale institutional grant submissions, including the CTSA grant, and served as the administrative director of the General Clinical Research Center on an interim basis.

Prior to her tenure at Minnesota, Moen worked in a variety of research capacities at Duke from 1997 – 2005. From 2004 – 2005, she served as the Administrative Manager of the Office of Grant Support in the School of Medicine and later as the Assistant Director of the Office of Research Administration. From 1997 – 2003, she worked at the DCRI in a number of roles, including Clinical Research Manager with the Center for Clinical and Genetic Economics and Business Development Associate with the Business Development Group. Moen played an important role in helping to increase the DCRI’s federally-funded research portfolio.

Moen holds an M.B.A. from the Kenan-Flager Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is a frequent lecturer on professional development topics for investigators, including the NIH review process, grant-writing, career development grants, and strategies for pursuing NIH funding.
