In Focus: Research Leaders

Pitt’s School of Nursing is unique because it has two T32 grants. These grants provide an extraordinary opportunity for support for nurses interested in pre-doctoral and postdoctoral research training in cancer survivorship, genomics and technology.

Continually ranked among the top 10 schools of nursing in the amount of research funding received from the National Institutes of Health, the School is also a Research Intensive Environment by the National Institute of Nursing Research.  The School has earned an internationally renowned reputation for several signature research programs in oncology nursing, chronic care, genomics, patient adherence, and nursing informatics.

Nursing research methodologies and outcomes are woven into the curricula at all degree levels at Pitt Nursing – one of the School’s featured programs is the Undergraduate Research Mentorship Program, the goal of which is to introduce students to research methods and to engage them in faculty-led projects and scholarship.
