Information for the P20 Center
Our mission is to promote nursing research in metabolic syndrome (MetS) and related multiple chronic conditions (MCC). The Center allows for more individualized care and to extend nursing science by offering biomarker, genetic/genomic, biobehavioral, lifestyle, and environmental explanations that will inform nursing care for diverse populations with symptoms of MetS.
- Promote innovative nursing research in MetS and related MCC: its complexity, relatedness, biodiversity, and impact for individuals and families using a precision health ecological perspective.
- Develop and sustain a research infrastructure of resources to support and accelerate early-career scientists in exploring MetS and related MCC.
- Facilitate the development of sustainable interdisciplinary collaborative teams dedicated to building the science of MCC from a precision health ecological perspective.

During my PhD program at NYU Meyers, I developed strong supportive mentoring relationships with the faculty that enriched my educational experience. I came back after a post-doctoral fellowship because of my continuing relationships with my faculty mentors.
When I was a PhD student here, I was truly mentored by wonderful faculty. I want other students to have that experience.
