Columbia University recently announced that Sarah Collins Rossetti, an assistant professor of biomedical informatics and nursing, has received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). The PECASE is bestowed by the US government on outstanding scientists and engineers who are beginning their independent research careers and who show exceptional promise for leadership in science and technology.
Rossetti was honored with the award on July 25th in Washington DC. Her nomination for the PECASE came from the National Institutes of Nursing Research (NINR), a part of the National Institutes of Health. She tells nursing.columbia.edu:
“It is truly humbling to be recognized among many of my scientist peers from so many disciplines. We strive to ensure that the frontiers of scientific knowledge continue to advance and be of service to all our communities. My hope is that my work continues to help nurses, patients, all clinicians, and the health care system so that we are delivering the highest quality care to patients possible.”
PECASE was established in 1996 and now serves to acknowledge the contributions scientists and engineers have made to the advancement of science, technology, education, and mathematics education and to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, and community outreach.
