Professor Helene Moriarty, RN, PhD, is the inaugural appointee to the Villanova (Pa.) University College of Nursing’s first endowed faculty chair, which is named for its donors: The Diane L. and Robert F. Moritz Jr. Endowed Chair in Nursing Research.

Moriarty will conduct and teach research as well as serve as a resource for faculty and students. She has been a nurse researcher at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center for 20 years and has held faculty positions at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and Villanova.

A prolific researcher and scholar, Moriarty has conducted interdisciplinary studies, many of which have focused on the physical and psychosocial health imperatives of veterans and their families. She is also a research methodologist.

“The chair reflects the university’s growing emphasis on faculty research that builds new knowledge within a faculty member’s field of inquiry and that also increases the capacity for interprofessional research collaboration,” Moriarty said in a news release.
