Jul 4, 2022
Dr. Michael McGillion has been re-appointed as assistant dean of research, School of Nursing, for five years beginning July 1st, 2022.
“McGillion’s contributions to the school during his first term have significantly impacted our research activities creating new processes; mentorship in support of the success for our faculty researchers; as well as detailed reporting mechanisms, keeping our research activity front and center nationally and internationally. In addition, a partnership between him and Dr. Nancy Carter, assistant dean, graduate nursing programs, features direct, detailed feedback to students applying for major external awards, has bolstered our school’s successes, including multiple CIHR Doctoral Fellowships and two Vanier Scholarships,” says Dr. Sandra Carroll, vice-dean, Faculty of Health Sciences and executive director, School of Nursing.
“As assistant dean of research, McGillion also remains committed to research leadership by example. In the past five years, he has secured, as a principal investigator, over $4.9 Million in CIHR and other extramural funding, and over $17 Million in industry investment for his research on virtual care with remote automated monitoring (RAM) of patients transitioning from hospital to home following surgery. Recently, he secured the largest research infrastructure grant, awarded across 50 Canadian Universities through the Canada Foundation for Innovation - John R. Evans Leaders Fund (CFI-JELF), to build a state-of-the-art nursing virtual care with RAM research facility. Construction of this new facility, that will be a leading centre of excellence in the virtual care sector, is underway at Hamilton Health Sciences. The facility will engage our School of Nursing graduate and undergraduate students,” Carroll notes.
Congratulations, Dr. McGillion!
