Purpose of SMPH Collaborate

SMPH Collaborate welcomes all individuals across campus involved in research — including undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, research staff, and faculty. This new event series from the Office of Basic Research, Biotechnology and Graduate Studies fosters connections among investigators, researchers, and learners by sharing research discoveries and building 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. Afterward, a social hour offers time for discussion to promote collaboration.
