Pless Center for Nursing Research

NYU College of Nursing’s Muriel and Virginia Pless Center for Nursing Research was established in 1995 with the purpose of supporting the college’s contribution to the scientific enterprise at NYU. The center’s goals are to provide a strong infrastructure to develop and support faculty research and scholarship and to nurture a collaborative research environment. The Pless Center provides resources for faculty research, including individual consultation, small grants for pilot studies, assistance with grant submissions, statistical support and peer review of grant proposals.

In addition to NYU College of Nursing resources for research, there are multiple NYU collaborating centers that contribute to advancing our mission at NYU College of Nursing. They include:
