For the seventh straight year, Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing is among the top five nursing programs of total grant funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The school posted the third-highest total, with approximately $10.5 million in research grants, fellowships, training grants and other awards from NIH in the past fiscal year. 

“Our research enterprise continues to advance nursing science across various topics, populations and research methodologies,” says Eun Ok Im, PhD, MPH, RN, CNS, FAAN, senior associate dean for research and innovation. “I look forward to future years full of innovative and impactful scholarly works, research training and extensive national and international partnerships. 

“With our productive and dedicated faculty members, we will continuously prosper and make significant contributions to nursing knowledge generation, mentoring/training of our next generations of nursing leaders, and patient care capacity.”

The school’s NIH-funded research grants support many research areas, including health disparities and health equity, pregnancy outcomes, aging, dementia caregiving, health promotion, disease management, HIV, symptom management and quality of life.
