Saneta Maiko

Saneta Maiko, Transforming Chaplaincy Fellow, Board Certified Chaplain Researcher with IU Health, and Affiliate Research Scientist with the IU Center for Aging Research (Regenstrief Institute), has been admitted to the Palliative Care Research Cooperative Group. The PCRCG is a vibrant interdisciplinary research community committed to advancing rigorous palliative care science and improving care for people with serious illness. The mission of the PCRC is to support the conduct of high quality, effective palliative care clinical research by:


  • Supporting investigators at all levels of experience in the conduct of clinical studies
  • Conducting nationally representative, multi-institutional studies that include diverse populations;
  • Leveraging common data elements and a de-identified palliative care study data repository that amplifies the impact of any single study;
  • Providing methodologic resources, participant access/recruitment, and the expertise of PCRC investigators from multiple disciplines.


To achieve this mission, the PCRC’s three-pronged strategy focuses on: (1) developing palliative care research capacity; (2) supporting the conduct, analysis, and dissemination of high-quality research in palliative care; and, (3) training and mentoring next / future investigators committed to advancing palliative care research.

Congratulations, Saneta!
