Deadline to Submit Proposals

March 3, 2024

The Delaware Health Sciences Alliance (DHSA) is pleased to release the attached Call for Abstracts for its Inaugural Nursing Research Pilot Grant. 

DHSA is seeking nursing research proposals from any of DHSA’s member institutions. This is a ‘shark tank’ type event with real-time presentations, judging and awards!

For the inaugural year, proposals are requested to have a focus and impact on direct patient care.


The DHSA Research Competition was established in 2019 to foster collaboration between colleagues at our member institutions. We favor projects in population health, including topical areas of interest such as those outlined above and encourage multidisciplinary collaborations with strong community engagement.

DHSA was established in 2009 with four founding partners – ChristianaCare, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Thomas Jefferson University, and the University of Delaware. Since then, additional partners have joined including the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bayhealth the Delaware Academy of Medicine/Delaware Public Health Association, Beebe Healthcare, Delaware State University and Delaware Technical Community College.

DHSA aligns resources and efforts to create a unique, broad-based alliance, focused on establishing innovative collaboration among experts in medical practice, health economics and policy, population sciences, public health, biomedical sciences and engineering, research, medical education, and healthcare workforce development.

The alliance enables partner organizations to collaborate and conduct cutting-edge research, to improve the health of Delawareans through access to services in the state and region, and to educate the next generation of health care professionals.
