Research is fundamental to the missions of both the University of Michigan and the School of Nursing. "Our strong research base is a critical element in supporting a superior educational environment for training the next generation of nurses," explains Associate Dean for Research and Global Affairs Antonia Villarruel. In 2012, the School of Nursing's research funding from the National Institutes for Health (NIH) hit a record high at more than $6.1 million overall (for projects with UMSN faculty as principal investigators).

The Grants and Research Office (GRO) within the School of Nursing supports this component through providing a variety of consultation services to faculty investigators during the grant application and post award management.
