Elizabeth (Liz) E. Umberfield, Ph.D., R.N., is a nurse scientist in the Division of Nursing Research. She is the first formally trained informaticist in the division. Her research focuses on amplifying patients' agency over their health care, health information and biospecimens throughout the digital health information ecosystem. Dr. Umberfield develops, evaluates and implements information resources, including:
