      Please join us for the upcoming State of the Science Congress on Nursing Research, which will be held on September 18 to 20th at the Washington Hilton, Washington, D.C. The theme this year is on Optimizing Health by Addressing Complexity. This will be an exciting conference where cutting-edge developments in nursing science will be presented. In addition to the keynote presentations on addressing complexity (Robert Kaplan, PhD, Chief Science Officer, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality), the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies Initiative (Thomas Insel, MD, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health), and Big Data (Patricia Flatley Brennan, PhD, RN, FAAN, Lillian L. Moehlman Bascom Professor at the School of Nursing and College of Engineering, University of Wisconsin–Madison), there will be more than 500 refereed presentations, including symposia, paper, and poster presentations. One of the plenary sessions will feature the presentations of distinction given by authors of the top scoring abstracts. Another plenary session will feature Dr. Patricia Grady, Director of the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), who will provide an update on activities and opportunities from NINR and National Institutes of Health. Other sessions include roundtable discussions with NINR project officers, a special panel session with editors of nursing journals, and a meeting of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards nurse scientists. The special sessions that are new this year include “Addressing Complexity in End-of-Life and Palliative Care Research” and “Current Issues Confronting Research Intensive Colleges/Schools of Nursing.” and “Preparing Applications for the American Academy of Nursing.” In addition, there will be a session with project officers from foundation and federal grant agencies.
