eRA Communications & Documentation Manager
Ms. Manju Subramanya joined NIH’s Office of Extramural Research as a communications manager in 2009. In that role, she is responsible for communications about the electronic Research Administration (eRA) program’s raft of 60-plus modules for grants processing (eRA Commons, Internet Assisted Review and more).
Manju leads the eRA Communications and Documentation Team, which is responsible for grants system communications (in the plainest language possible) to grantees and applicants as well as communications internally to NIH extramural staff; creating and maintaining the eRA websites; providing state-of-the-art online help documentation within eRA modules; creating video tutorials to help users navigate eRA systems; and more.
She was also part of the OER communications team that helped transition NIH from paper to electronic submission of grant applications.
Prior to her NIH career, Manju was a senior reporter covering health and public safety issues in Montgomery County for The Gazette newspapers. She has a master’s degree in mass communications from Towson University.
