GIM's Assistant Professor Hanan Aboumatar, MD, has learned that her application to the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) for a PCORI Research Contract has been funded. Only about 13% of applications were selected for funding. Dr. Aboumatar's research project is titled "An Integrative Multilevel Study for Improving Patient-centered Care Delivery among Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease." The contract funds her project for three years by providing $2 million. The research will study COPD patients admitted to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. Dr. Aboumatar's research is centered in the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality.
Congratulations, Dr. Aboumatar!
