On Wednesday, Nov. 14, Dr. Christopher Lee will present the fourth 2018 NINR Director’s Lecture, from 2 to 3 p.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10. In his presentation, “Integrative Biobehavioral Research in Heart Failure,” Lee will describe his career trajectory and current program of research, which focuses on symptom science. The lecture will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.

Lee is professor and associate dean for research at Boston College’s Connell School of Nursing. His research in heart failure is focused on symptom science and patients’ response to symptoms when they occur. His innovative approach to research that he calls “biobehavioral profiling” reflects a deep understanding of biological underpinnings of symptomatology as well as contemporary knowledge of advanced statistical techniques that he employs to disentangle heterogeneous responses to heart failure and its therapies.

The NINR Director’s Lecture Series is designed to bring the nation’s top nurse scientists to campus to share their work and interests with a transdisciplinary audience. The event is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, visit
