Cardiovascular scientist named Ambassador for Friends of National Institute of Nursing Research


Assistant Professor Mulubrhan Mogos, PhD, has been named an ambassador for the Friends of the National Institute of Nursing Research, an independent nonprofit organization that advocates for nursing science and its role in promoting the health and well-being of Americans.

Mogos was one of 15 nurse leaders selected nationally for their abilities to advance public, health profession and policy-maker awareness of the National Institute for Nursing Research’s agenda. The ambassadors focus on working with congressional leaders and educating them on the high-impact, cost-effective treatments and quality-of-life developments generated by nursing science; the group’s ultimate goal is to expand funding to ensure training of nurse scientists.

Mogos, who joined VUSN in 2019, studies cardiovascular health conditions during pregnancy and associated adverse maternal-infant health outcomes. His research has received local and national funding, including an R01 grant from the National Institutes of Health investigating the role of ultrasound technology in predicting preterm birth (co-investigator). He is a Valere Potter Dean’s Distinguished Faculty Fellow at Vanderbilt.
