The Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing (HIGN) Research Center advances geriatric research that supports clinical practice that is effective, safe and inclusive for older adults. The primary goal of the HIGN Research Center is to advance research in aging amongst NYUCN faculty and students. Led by Dr. Liz Capezuti, the Dr. John W. Rowe Professor in Successful Aging, our core group of full-time NYU College of Nursing faculty scientists conduct research as their primary academic role within the Center. These investigators have active programs of research that focus on the development and translation of effective interventions into practice, including system-change approaches to transform provider behavior.
Our scientists are also very proud of our work to help build the nation’s capacity for aging research through specific faculty development activities and formal student and junior faculty mentorship.
The HIGN Research Center includes:
HIGN Faculty: full-time NYUCN faculty with specific functions within the HIGN.
HIGN Senior Faculty Associates: full-time tenured NYUCN faculty.
HIGN Faculty Associates: full-time NYUCN tenure-track faculty.
HIGN Senior Clinical Faculty Associates: full-time, doctorally-prepared, clinical-track NYUCN faculty.
Clinical Faculty Associates: full-time NYUCN clinical-track faculty.
Doctoral Students: Students at NYUCN have the opportunity to focus their PhD dissertation or DNP capstone project in geriatrics.
In addition to NYU Faculty, the Center has professional relationships with affiliated scientists and clinicians that represent a broad range of academic disciplines. They promote the mission of the center and assist in the review of proposals, manuscripts, provide mentoring of junior faculty and students/fellows, and contribute to the translation of research to clinical practice tools. These include:
Senior Research Adviser: doctorally-prepared researchers
Senior Clinical Adviser: clinicians and clinical educators
