Clinical Research Professor Susan Sinclair was selected to receive the 2017 Chancellor’s Teaching Excellence Award.

The award recognizes all aspects of excellence in teaching and in teaching-related activities that foster students’ desire for lifetime learning and success. Recipients receive a medallion to wear at official University Convocations and Commencements and a one-time monetary stipend.

“I am grateful for this award and the support I have received from the leadership of CHHS, the School of Nursing and the Office of e-Learning,” Susan said. “Teaching our promising clinical research students, alongside our excellent faculty, has been immensely rewarding.” 

Susan has been recognized nationally and internationally for her expertise in pharmacoepidemiology. She has published and presented extensively on this topic at the local, national and international levels. 

Susan received her Ph.D. in epidemiology from School of Public Health at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, her MPH in Environmental Sciences at the School of Public Health at Columbia University and her BSN from the School of Nursing at East Carolina University.

She has been extremely active in growing the BS Clinical Research program, through heavy recruitment efforts and curriculum evaluation and modifications. She served as the program coordinator for the clinical research program from 2010-14; as the School of Nursing faculty chair during the 2014-15 academic year and led the development of a new workload policy for the School of Nursing.

Susan was promoted to full professor within the School of Nursing during the 2017 academic year. Her passion for clinical research, public health and lifelong learning is evident to faculty, staff, external constituents, community partners and students.

Congratulations on this excellent achievement, Susan!
