Professor Andrew Whitehead is among Eight IUPUI researchers, with current projects such as improving the quality of care for older adults and better understanding the role of Christian nationalism in the U.S., honored as 2023 Research Frontiers Trailblazers.

This prestigous annual award from the Indianapolis campus’s Vice Chancellor for Research recognizes associate professors in the first three years of their academic appointment who have made exceptional contributions to research in their field. This year’s recipients mark the largest group of honorees in the award’s history, joining 35 others who have been recognized since the award’s inception in 2010.

“We are thrilled to honor these eight faculty researchers, whose impactful work is truly bettering lives and communities here in our state and around the world,” said Phaedra Corso, IU associate vice president for research and vice chancellor for research at IUPUI. “As we continue our efforts to make our Indianapolis campus one of the nation’s premier urban research institutions, we celebrate the exceptional work these researchers are already doing to advance knowledge within their fields.”
