The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) has selected Donna L. Berry, PhD, RN, AOCN®, FAAN, director of the Cantor Center for Research in Nursing and Patient Care Services at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, to receive its 2011 Distinguished Researcher Award. She will accept this award at the 2011 Annual ONS Congress in Boston on April 28.
The Distinguished Researcher Award recognizes the lifetime contributions of an ONS member who conducts or promotes research that enhances the science and practice of oncology nursing.
"This is the highest honor that an oncology nurse researcher can receive, so it's a privilege, and very special to me, that I'm being recognized by my peers," Berry says.
The Cantor Center was established to reduce the burden of cancer through scholarly inquiry and rigorous research. The center's research is focused on the patient and family experience of living with a predisposition to or diagnosis of cancer.
Berry, who is also an associate professor of medicine at the Harvard Medical School, is widely recognized for her research involving patient-centered oncology care and leadership within oncology research. Her programs of research have been supported by the Oncology Nursing Foundation, the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Nursing Research.
Berry completed her undergraduate education at Baylor University and holds graduate degrees from the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston and the University of Washington. She continues to work with investigators at the University of Washington.
