Sixteen faculty members from the University of Notre Dame have been awarded funding from the University’s Science of Wellness Initiative’s (SWI) Catalyst Seed Grant (CSG) program. Nearly 100 pre-proposals were submitted and faculty from five different colleges and schools received awards.
The sponsor of the initiative, Charles and Jill Fischer Provost Thomas G. Burish, said he is encouraged by the level of participation in this new effort.
“The number of submissions for this inaugural round of grants suggests a high level of faculty interest in this initiative,” Burish said. “The range and quality of submissions also provides an early indication of the potential for Notre Dame to contribute significantly to improving wellness through better prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. I am enthusiastic about the projects being funded in this round and look forward to seeing the results.”
Recipients of the SWI CSG program are:
- Corey Angst, professor in the Department of IT, Analytics, and Operations, Chris Adkins, Rex and Alice Martin Director of the Notre Dame Deloitte Center for Ethical Leadership and associate teaching professor in the Department of Management and Organization, and Ann Tenbrunsel, David E. Gallo Professor of Business Ethics in the Department of Management and Organization, for their project titled, “Preliminaries in studying well-being: Identifying the blind spots involved in collection and consent of healthcare data.” Nathan Meikle, postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Management and Organization, will also contribute to the project.
