Keynote Address: The Fifth Annual Brouse Lecture

The Fifth Annual Brouse lecture and keynote address was presented by Susan G. Dorsey, PhD, RN, FAAN, 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 principal investigator of the NINR P30-funded University of Maryland Center for Pain Studies. Her currently funded R01 supports pre-clinical mechanistic and interventional studies designed to identify new therapeutic targets that can be used to improve or ameliorate antiretroviral-associated neuropathic pain.


The Annual Brouse Lecture is made possible through generous donation by Suzanne H. Brouse, PhD, RN, who received her bachelor of science in nursing from the University of Michigan in 1958.

About the Event

Nursing research is at the core of advancing health care. As a champion of nursing research that has impact, Dean Kathleen 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.
