2010 Award Winners Print E-mail

Congratulations to all of these outstanding nurses!

The Hasselmeyer Award for Research Initiatives is given to a nurse who demonstrates exemplary leadership resulting in noteworthy accomplishments in conducting nursing research and clinical investigation which stimulates the development of new knowledge and practice in nursing and/or health professions. The 2010 award was presented to LT Leorey Saligan of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD. LT Saligan is the principal investigator in three fatigue studies aiming to better understand the molecular-genetic mechanisms involved in fatigue in various patient populations. He has facilitated the formation and maintenance of collaborations among the National Institute for Learning Research (NINR), National Cancer Institute, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, Rehabilitation Department of the Clinical Center of the NIH, and the Rheumatology Department of Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC. His leadership in the formation of these collaborations paved the way to the development of his protocol, as well as facilitating the development of collaborations between other NINR investigators and investigators in other institutes. Additionally, his protocol format is now used as the template for all NINR protocols.
