Elizabeth Flood-Grady Receives NIH LRP Research Grant

Elizabeth Flood-Grady, visiting assistant professor in the STEM Translational Communication Center at the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications and manager of the Clinical and Translational Science Institute Recruitment Center, is the recipient of a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Loan Repayment Program (LRP) grant from the Health Disparities Division and National Institute on Aging.

Flood-Grady received the grant for her work evaluating a recruitment intervention and implementing a system for tracking cancer clinical trial recruitment outcomes in the University’s clinical trial management system.

The grant will help extend some of Flood-Grady’s current recruitment research as a co-investigator on an R24 grant funded by the National Institute on Aging. Her project is focused on using new technology to enroll older adult minorities in cancer clinical trials and to begin establishing a framework for tracking cancer clinical recruitment outcomes across UF’s cancer clinical trials.

The NIH LRP program was established by Congress and designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers. In exchange for conducting research, a significant portion of student loans are paid.
