Center for Nursing Research DUSON Strategic Research Funding Report (July-Dec 2017)
Research Center Core Infrastructure Support
One goal of the strategic plan is to develop an infrastructure that fosters research faculty mentorship and development to be competitive for NIH level funding. The Chancellor’s grant allowed the creation of four new, full‐time positions to expand the services and level of support offered to DUSON research scientists. Recruitment began in Spring of 2017 and is now complete; all positions are filled and orientation is accomplished.
At the annual AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit in San Franscisco which focuses on informatics research and innovation that facilitates translational research, two DUSON faculty papers were recognized. Hyeoneui Kim's paper entitled "iCONCUR: informed consent for clinical data and bio-sample use for research" and Rachel Richesson's paper entitled "Pragmatic (trial) informatics: a perspective from the NIH Health Care Systems Researach Collaboratory."
