TWU Faculty Receive Research Grants


DENTON — Six Texas Woman's University faculty have received grants to begin or continue research.

  • Dr. Judith McFarlane (professor of nursing-Houston) and Dr. Ann Malecha (assistant professor of nursing-Houston) have been awarded $254,322 by the National Institute of Justice for a project titled "Sexual Assault Among Intimates: Frequency, Consequences and Treatments." The analysis will compare the type and extent of intimate partner violence, physical and mental functional status and employment attendance of women reporting sexual assault compared to a similar group of women not reporting sexual assault. In addition, the psychosocial and school functioning of children living with a sexually assaulted mother will be compared to youngsters whose mother has not experienced sexual assault.
  • Dr. Lynda Uphouse (professor of biology) has been awarded $218,015 from the National Institutes of Health for a project titled "Reduced Lordosis Behavior After Intracerbral 8-OH-DPAT." The grant is a continuing application.
  • Dr. Kelley Moseley (professor of health care administration-Houston) has been awarded $41,178 from the Health Resource & Services Administration for a project titled "Health Administration Traineeship and Special Project." The project is designed to provide opportunities for individuals from under-served communities to pursue careers in health administration, enhance opportunities for graduates to be employed in public or nonprofit health organizations and provide continuing education for individuals currently practicing in public/nonprofit settings.
  • Dr. Kathryn Peek (Institute for Women's Health-Houston) and Dr. Kelley Moseley have been awarded $7,711 as a subcontract from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston on a grant from Health and Human Services for a project titled "Madison High School Health Career Academy."
