Ann Mongoven, PhD, Assistant Professor in the Center for Ethics and Humanities in the Life Sciences was awarded a 5-year R01 grant in December 2010 from the National Institutes of Health. Her project, “Linking Community Engagement Research to Public Health Biobank Practice,” is part of a larger research project led by Sharon Kardia at the University of Michigan. The Michigan State University study will help drive public policy decisions and develop an improved consent process for the state’s bio-bank, known as the Michigan BioTrust. Jeff Proulx, a Health and Risk Communication graduate student, worked as a research assistant on the grant until his graduation in spring of 2012. Andrea Sexton, another Health and Risk Communication graduate student, joined the grant at that time to continue the research support. Read more about this study.
