Connell School Dean Susan Gennaro and Associate Dean for Research Barbara Wolfe have both been asked to serve on study sections for the Center for Scientific Review at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Susan Gennaro was appointed to the Nursing Science: Children and Families Study Section. Barbara Wolfe was named chair of the Nursing Science: Adults and Older Adults Study Section, on which she has served since 2006.

Study sections review grant applications submitted to the NIH, make recommendations on these applications to the appropriate NIH national advisory council or board, and survey the status of research in their fields of science. The study sections are concerned with preventing, delaying the onset, and slowing the progression of disease and disability within a certain population. The Children and Families Study Section focuses on preconception to young adulthood, while the Adults and Older Adults Study Section is concerned with mid-life and older adults.

Members are selected on the basis of demonstrated expertise in their scientific discipline as evidenced by the quality of research accomplishments, publications in scientific journals, and other significant scientific activities and achievements. Study section membership is a prestigious honor which represents a major commitment of professional time and energy, as well as a unique opportunity to contribute to the national biomedical research effort.
