Research and Sponsored Projects
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 in a variety of areas:
- basic biological sciences
- acute and chronic care efficacy trials in humans
- health system science
- health-promotion studies
- investigation of care effectiveness in a variety of settings
- population-based studies.
Collaboration across the schools and research institutions is a hallmark of the University of Michigan, providing opportunities to build strong interdisciplinary teams that bring top-tier investigators to research. U-M provides a rich interdisciplinary environment for faculty and students in the current era of "team science."
UMSN faculty are funded from major federal agencies and mechanisms including:
- National Institutes of Health (NIH)
- Centers for Disease Control (CDC) including the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
- Department of Defense
- Department of Justice
- Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
- Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI)
Additional research support comes through national and regional foundations providing a broad portfolio with significant resources to faculty and students engaged in research. This past year (2014), UMSN received $7.8 million in allocations for research and training.
