WHAT WE DO

Established in 2008, the Faye Glenn Abdellah Center for Military and Federal Health Research creates a dynamic research environment that facilitates faculty and student research and scholarship. It supports both new and experienced scientists, increases extramural research funding, fosters transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary research, increases peer-reviewed publications, and develops and matures programs of research that are relevant to military and federal health.

Faye Glenn Abdellah Center team members sponsor meetings and work groups that are designed to generate a rich exchange of ideas and propel nursing science. Collectively, nurse scientists discuss potential research topics and collaborations, sharpen research methods, hone grant applications, constructively critique each other’s work, share research results, and relate research findings to clinical practice, education, management, policy, and/or military doctrine.
