The experience of symptoms, both physical and emotional, is a primary determinant of the quality of life of persons in all states of health and illness, including at the end of life.

Understanding the biologic and psychologic bases of symptoms, influence of social determinants, and mechanisms of intervention are central concerns in nursing science. Investigations that identify molecular and genetic pathways, apply innovative measurement approaches, and test symptom management strategies in clinical trials are the foci of symptom research in the School of Nursing.
