The ceremony took place on July 25th at STTI’s 26th International Nursing Research Congress in Puerto Rico.

The International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame recognizes nurse researchers who have achieved significant and sustained national or international recognition and whose research has improved the profession and the people it serves.

Lamb Endowed Chair in Symptom Management Research and is an American Cancer Society Clinical Research Professor. An internationally recognized expert on pain and symptom management, she has secured millions of dollars in funding from the US National Institutes of Health and has authored more than 450 publications.

Christine is a member of MASCC’s Fatigue, Geriatrics, and Palliative Care Study Groups. At the 2015 MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting, she presented a paper titled, “Comparison of Upper and Lower Extremity Characterization of Chemotherapy-Induced Neuropathy Using Patient-Reported Outcome Measures.” Her current research interests include the identification of phenotypic and molecular characteristics that predict increased risk for a higher symptom burden in patients with cancer.
