The College of Nursing and Health Sciences and its Office of Research offer strong internal and external mentoring programs for faculty, including assistance with grant proposal and manuscript preparation. Our faculty have interest and research expertise in health promotion across the life course, prevention and management of communicable and non-communicable disease, social and behavioral determinants of health, population health, and health policy. The Department of Nursing, along with the Department of Exercise & Health Sciences, offer a wide range of multidisciplinary collaborative research opportunities, including those with major academic, medical and community–based institutions such as Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center, UMass Medical Center, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Boston Public Schools, and other community, public and private healthcare agencies. A National Cancer Institute-funded collaborative grant with Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center has strengthened and enabled partnerships, pre- and post-doctoral training, research, and community outreach initiatives.
