Heather Tipaldos

Program Director, Grants

Heather has over 20 years’ experience in managing large research programs and has recently taken on the role of leading the grants office at SSRI-West. For her first two years at Duke, she was the Chief of Staff/Administrative Manager for the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center. Prior to Duke, she was the Associate Director, Administration and Finance for the Center of Electronic Imaging Systems at the University of Rochester with a large portfolio of Federal, State, and Corporate grant funds.

Now that her children are all grown and flown the coop- she and her husband have time to do things together that they would have never had time to do. Heather's husband is an avid golfer; so she has begun taking lessons and hitting the green with him on weekends. The quality time that they spend with each other is priceless!
