Research Committee

The research committee of ISONG fosters research activities in nursing, genetics, and related areas to enhance professional and personal development of members, consistent with the vision, mission and goals of the society. Our goal is to facilitate the research activities of ISONG members which include:

  • Raising awareness of the role of research within ISONG's core business
  • Alerting members to research opportunities (funding, collaboration among members)
  • Administering the ISONG annual grant award through an equitable and efficient process. Visit Research Grants
  • Disseminating news of research to key stakeholders (members, patients, other professional, funders).
