The biological domain of nursing research is immense and encompasses a multitude and range of methodologies. Because the research training of nurses does not always include education in biological methods, many nurses may not be aware of the potential and use of biological assays to examine phenomena related to their studies. Additionally, many nurse researchers use biologic assays, but may have questions related to the development of more advanced and technical methods. The purpose of this symposium is to review the development and use of advanced and emerging biological methods in nursing research, with emphasis on analyzing microvascular, cellular, and genetic alterations in human health. The investigators presenting in this symposium will discuss various advanced biologic research methods. Each presenter will highlight technical aspects of development and use of the method by illustrating some of the results from their studies. In the first paper, Dr. Ritter will present aspects of her research analyzing the contribution of inflammation on ischemic stroke in type 2 diabetes by direct visualization of the cerebral microcirculation. Helena Morrison, a doctoral student working with Dr. Ritter, will present the second paper on the use of flow cytometry to further the understanding of neutrophil function after an ischemic stroke and reperfusion. For the third paper of this symposium, Dr. Henry will present on the use and development of three whole blood methods for analyzing platelet activation, aggregation, and coagulation in obese, type 2 diabetic mouse models. In the fourth and fifth papers, Dr. Merkle and doctoral student, Charles Downs, will present assays examining aging using telomere length and use of emerging RNA-based methods in genetic research. The biological domain is a very rewarding and exciting aspect of nursing research. This symposium presents a wide variety of methods to analyze diverse biological phenomena related to human health and disease. Development of biological assays for use in nursing research can be a daunting task, however, we hope that this symposium provides some background and support for nurses who are interested in undertaking and exploring this type of research.
