Kristen Miller, DrPH, CPPS, Senior Research Scientist at the National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare at MedStar Health, was featured in a Texas A&M School of Public Health Spring 2017 alumni spotlight. She was recognized for being awarded a 4-year, $1.4 million R01 research grant from the U.S. National Library of Medicine through the U.S. National Institutes of Health to develop a new approach to detect and treat sepsis—which nationally infects about 1 million people annually, killing a quarter of them.

Miller will lead this work from MedStar, marking a significant milestone for the MedStar Institute for Innovation (MI2) and its National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare, as the NIH R01 research grant is among the most prestigious awards. This is the third R01 grant awarded to an MI2 associate.
