Webinar: Navigating Research Collaborations as a Teaching-Based Professor

When: Thursday, March 25, 2021; 2:00-3:00 p.m. CT

National Institute of Health’s National Institute for General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) is committed to increasing biomedical research capacity, including at institutions where faculty have significant teaching responsibilities. In these settings, research collaborations across institutions can be especially beneficial. An upcoming webinar explores this topic.

The panelists, all NIH Research Enhancement Award (R15) grantees who collaborate with principal investigators outside their institutions, include:

  • Timothy B. Clark, professor, department of chemistry and biochemistry, University of San Diego
  • Wendi M. David, senior lecturer, department of chemistry and biochemistry, Texas State University
  • Megan Núñez, professor of chemistry and dean of faculty affairs, Wellesley College
  • Peter Woodruff, associate professor of chemistry, University of Southern Maine

Following the panel presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
