It gives me great pleasure to announce that Dr. Jennifer Payne has accepted the position as Associate Head, Research, for the Dalhousie Department of Diagnostic Radiology, effective October 13th, 2019. 

Dr. Payne has been a member of the Diagnostic Radiology Department, providing expertise as an epidemiologist since 2006.  In that time, she has also worked extensively with the Nova Scotia Breast Screening Program, as well as several other provincial care programs.  She brings a wealth of experience in study design, methodology, and data management and analysis, and has a particular interest in linking researchers across different disciplines.  Her experience working with the NSHA research services office and with the Faculty of Medicine Research Advisory unit will be invaluable in helping department members navigate within the local research environment.  Dr. Payne has also worked at the national level having chaired the Monitoring and Evaluation Working Group of the Canadian Breast Cancer Screening Network in addition to being responsible for overseeing the collection and reporting of data in the Canadian Breast Cancer Screening Database at the Public Health Agency of Canada.

I hope you will all join me in welcoming Dr. Payne into this new role.

Dr. Payne will be filling the shoes of Dr. Matthias Schmidt who was instrumental in growing the research enterprise within the Department and I would very much like to thank him for his stewardship of our research activities.  Dr. Schmidt is looking forward to focussing on his role as Residency Program Director for the Neuroradiology Residency program which will be undergoing its first accreditation visit in a number of years and we wish him all the best.
