Glenda Lindseth, director of research for the College of Nursing, has been awarded the prestigious National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) Ada Sue Hinshaw Award given by the Friends of the NINR. The award focuses attention on significant nursing research and contributions made by a nurse scientist to improve health care.
“Dr. Lindseth has been an outstanding researcher and instrumental leader at the University of North Dakota College of Nursing”, states Chandice Covington, dean of nursing. “She is very deserving of this award and I am thrilled that she is being recognized by her peers.”
Lindseth’s research has focused on nutrition and related variables that can cause nausea, vomiting and gallstones in pregnant women. She is currently studying the effects of nutrition on cognition, which has garnered her the Sigma Theta Tau chapter's “Outstanding Researcher Award.” Most recently, Lindseth has led efforts to secure funding for the Northern Plains Center for Behavioral Research on the UND campus and in submitting a Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences Award to the National Institutes of Health.
“I am very honored and humbled to have received this award. Because much of my work is collaborative, my sincere thanks go to my colleagues who have contributed to the work that has resulted in the award,” said Lindseth.
Lindseth has an extensive list of publications, research grants, special lectures and awards. She has been named a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing and a Fellow of the American Dietetic Association. She has more than 140 refereed publications/presentations and has received $7 million in external funding over the past three years.
Lindseth earned her master of nursing from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and her doctorate from Saint Louis University in Missouri. She also completed an NIH-sponsored post-doctoral study at Wayne State University in Detroit.
The Ada Sue Hinshaw Award is funded by FNINR in honor of Ada Sue Hinshaw, the first permanent director of the National Institute of Nursing Research. The award includes an unrestricted grant that supports outstanding work of a nurse researcher.
