2014 Dean's Research Day Preview

"From Molecules to Community: The Science of Pain" is the theme for 2015 Dean's Research Day. The annual Brouse Lecture keynote speaker will be Susan G. Dorsey, PhD, RN, FAAN, Associate Dean of Research at University of Maryland School of Nursing. Dr. Dorsey’s basic and translational program of research in the molecular, cellular and genetic mechanisms underlying the development and persistence of chronic pain has been continuously funded by the NIH and the American Pain Society. She is the PI of the NINR P30-funded UM Center for Pain Studies. Her currently funded R01 supports pre-clinical mechanistic and intervention studies designed to identify new therapeutic targets that can be used to improve or ameliorate antiretroviral-associated neuropathic pain. 

About the Event

Nursing research is at the core of advancing health care. As a champion of nursing research that has impact, Dean Student poster presentationsKathleen Potempa organized an initiative in 2009 to bring together the nursing community for a day dedicated to research. Dean Potempa's goal was not only to provide an additional forum for faculty; she also wanted to give students at all levels an opportunity to present their research, igniting and fueling their own research ambitions. Now an annual event at the school, Dean's Research Day remains a way for faculty, students, and university health care professionals to share the impact of their research, while hearing new perspectives and forging collaborative partnerships.
