NINR Launches Omics Nursing Science & Education Network (ONSEN)

August 29, 2018

To advance the growing importance of “omics” in nursing science, NINR has developed the Omics Nursing Science & Education Network (ONSEN) website in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI). The goal of ONSEN is to advance omics nursing research and education and to facilitate collaborations, mentoring, and access to training opportunities. ONSEN content was developed by a workgroup of experts in genomics and other omics (e.g., microbiomics, metabolomics, proteomics), education, practice, and nursing research. 

“We are pleased to partner with NCI and NHGRI to promote omics nursing science,” said NINR director, Dr. Patricia A. Grady. “We look forward to seeing how scientists use this online resource to advance the field.” 

Through ONSEN, nurse scientists and trainees will be able to leverage samples and datasets, locate mentors and collaborators, disseminate information on pre- and post-doctoral training opportunities, and build skills for integrating omics into their programs of research.
