Curriculum Vitae

Dr. M. Cynthia Logsdon, Associate Vice President for Research and Creative Activities, leads strategic efforts to attract, nurture and retain world-class research, scholarship and creative talent for the University of Louisville. Logsdon has spearheaded a number of initiatives to further these goals, including the launch of new research tools and infrastructure; building a centralized post-doctoral researcher support office from the ground up; and creating professional development programs, such as the Ascending Star Fellows, which provide mentorship and connections to mid-career, high-performing faculty. These efforts underpin UofL’s research enterprise by fostering growth, collaboration, equity and diversity of thought, all with the goal of driving work that shifts paradigms and saves and improves lives. This work is a natural fit with Dr. Logsdon’s background as a nurse scientist, journal editor, and national nurse leader
