Services for Investigators
The UMSN Grants and Research Office
(GRO) supports our research enterprise by providing a variety of services to faculty and student investigators during the grant application process (pre-award) and in post-award management.
The University of Michigan School of Nursing (UMSN) distinguishes itself through an emphasis on building robust science. Being at the forefront of high-impact scientific discoveries, our faculty engage in research across the globe
and in broad areas such as
- Acute and Chronic Symptom Science, including diabetes, pain management, cancer fatigue, and childbearing recovery
- Big data, including visualization, analytics, and informatics
- Health system and care effectiveness research.
Transdisciplinary research, education and clinical practice are also integral to much of nursing science at UMSN.
