LLUH Research Foci with NINR Components

The LLUH Research Services Committee has identified the following seven areas of research as those in which to concentrate our efforts:

  • Health Disparities & Global Health
  • Lifestyle Diseases
  • Cancer
  • Mother & Child
  • Neuroscience
  • Mental/Behavioral Health
  • Aging Populations

Across these seven foci, community, clinical, preclinical, and basic research is encouraged.

The NINR Strategic Plan https://www.ninr.nih.gov/sites/files/docs/NINR_StratPlan2016_reduced.pdf and LLU research foci share commonalities.  Attention to promoting innovation is paramount across the four areas of NINR research foci:

  • Symptom Science
  • Wellness
  • Self-Management
  • End-of-life & Palliative Care

The School of Nursing Research Committee encourages you to consider areas of overlap between the LLUH research foci and the NINR foci as you develop research proposals for School of Nursing seed funds, GRASP, or extramural funding opportunities.

If you are interested in collaborating with other researchers concentrating on a particular topic of LLUH researcher focus, contact the Office of Sponsored Research or visit http://researchaffairs.llu.edu/about-us/research-centers-institutes for links to each school’s research page.

On behalf of the School of Nursing Research Committee, we wish you all the best in your scholarly work and pursuit of research.
