Sandra G. Funk, PhD, FAAN, is a professor emerita of the School of Nursing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she was a faculty member (instructor through professor and Frances Hill Fox Term Distinguished Professor) for 37 years from 1976 through 2013.
She taught research methods, statistics and grant-writing to masters’ and doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, visiting scholars, and faculty and co-taught with Elizabeth Tornquist an institute on grant writing.  As Associate Dean for Research (for 15 years) and Director of the Research Support Center (for 23 years), Dr. Funk led the school’s research mission and mentored faculty on design, measurement, proposal development, and research management (for 12 of her 15 years as Associate Dean, the school was ranked 3rd or 4th in NIH grant funding).  She has also consulted with other universities and their faculty in these same areas.  She served as PI or Co-I on over $6 million in research funding and served as a reviewer for NIH and other federal agencies for over a decade.  Dr. Funk’s research interests, grants and publications, which number over 100, focus on various aspects of applied measurement and research utilization and facilitation.  She is the co-editor of six books, five of which were honored with AJN Book-of-the-Year awards, and recently wrote a book with Elizabeth Tornquist (Writing Winning Proposals for Nurses and Health Care Professionals) which was published by Springer Publishing Company.
