• Pam Bounelis, PhD, serves as the Research Integrity Officer (RIO) and Assistant Vice President for Research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). She is also the Assistant Dean for Biomedical Research in the UAB School of Medicine and associate professor in the Department of Cell, Developmental, and Integrative Biology. She received her PhD in anatomy from the University of Illinois in Chicago (1985) and was recruited to UAB shortly thereafter. In her role as RIO, Dr. Bounelis has responsibility for the research misconduct process. She has more than 15 years of experience in space programming and planning. She has been the lead or substantially‐contributing author on many extramural proposals that have resulted in nearly $90 million of extramural support to UAB for capital projects and equipment acquisition. She has served on four NIH special emphasis panel/scientific review groups. She is an active member of the American Association of Medical Colleges Group on Institutional Planning and currently serves as the National Chair.
