I am proud to welcome you to The James R. & Helen D. Russell Institute for Research & Innovation website. Opened in October 2012, the Institute brings together research in one central location at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital with a group of highly trained research coordinators and professionals - here to help you. Through this portal you will learn how to get started with your research, how the Institute can support your research, and meet our highly capable research team.
Our mission is to guide, assist, and support our physicians, nurses, and associates at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and its sister hospitals, Condell Medical Center, Good Shepherd Hospital, and Sherman Hospital in the development and conduct of innovative research initiatives, from conception to publication. These are exciting times for our research Institute as it matures and contributes to patient centered outcomes research, clinical trials research, and translational science research.
Enjoy exploring our website, and we hope to work with you soon!
Nancy Cipparrone, MA
Director, James R. & Helen D. Russell Institute for Research & Innovation
