Research Area:

Dr. Wright’s vision for the future is to generate new knowledge through the use of omic-based measures that nurses can use to better assess and intervene to improve health outcomes. Her established program of research on the influence of social factors on health outcomes has led to over 30 publications with over 600 citations. Her sustained significant contributions to nursing research is evidenced by her work on federally-funded projects from the National Institutes of Health, a UT system Rising Stars Award and Health Scholar awardee by the Aspen Ideas Festival. Dr. Wright’s unique contributions to nursing have been recognized internationally as an invited speaker at the International Society for Nurses in Genetics, Sigma Theta Tau International, and Collaborative on Health and the Environment. Her ability to articulate the significance of omic-based research for guiding clinical practice has paved new opportunities for nurse researchers and interdisciplinary partnerships. Dr. Wright earned her BS in Biomedical Sciences and Chemistry from Western Michigan University, MS and RN from DePaul University, PhD from the University of North Dakota, and completed Postdoctoral Fellowships at Virginia Common Wealth University and Yale University.
