SMPH Collaborate

An event series for investigators, researchers, and learners

The next installment of SMPH Collaborate will be held on Friday, Sept. 30, 3-5 p.m. in Health Sciences Learning Center 1306.

All individuals from across campus involved in research — including undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, research staff, and faculty — are welcome at SMPH Collaborate, a new event series from the Office of Basic Research, Biotechnology and Graduate Studies.

SMPH Collaborate fosters connections among investigators, researchers, and learners through the sharing of research discoveries and building of community. Events, typically held three times per academic year, include two components.  The first hour features researchers at various career stages — graduate students, postdocs, research staff, junior faculty, and senior faculty — presenting novel research and innovative technologies. A social hour offers time for discussion to promote collaboration.
