Eight interdisciplinary faculty research projects — on health topics including pain management, improving provider-patient communication, and intimate partner violence — have received about $300,000 in grant funding through a new partnership between the UCF Academic Health Sciences Center and the Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation. The donation is the first major programmatic gift to the AHSC since it was created in 2018.

Winners include faculty from all four AHSC units — the colleges of Health Professions and SciencesMedicine and Nursing, as well as Student Health Services — with support from other university entities.

Eight nursing faculty and staff members are among the recipients: Kelly Allred, Mindi Anderson, Christopher W. Blackwell, Desiree Díaz, Peggy Hill, Boon Peng Ng, Susan Quelly, and Syretta Spears.
