Research Initiatives Program
Please Support Nursing Research for ISONG Members
Fostering scientific research in genetics is an important part of ISONG's mission. Along with the call for the opening of the 2019 program ISONG is embarking on a new Nursing Research Directed Donations Campaign to offer nursing research grants for our members.
With the guidance of the ISONG Research Committee we are reaching for a goal of $2,000 to award a grant. The progress will be visible through a DNA helix graphic that will be featured on our website.
The helix will be a visual of how the DNA forms the building blocks of life, and likewise, how support from our members forms the building blocks to launch independent research programs. In a similar way, just as the sugar phosphate backbone supports the DNA, mentorship supports budding scientists. Finally, just like the hydrogen bonds between base pairs, two friends or collaborators can form a bond to move science forward.
Donations help to build these bases and grow our helix towards the ultimate goal of offering this important grant to an ISONG member.
Funds will come from individual members, universities, corporate sponsors, genetics professionals, and altruistic donors from local organizations, foundations, or others interested in supporting and investing in genetics research by ISONG nurses.
