Engage with CBE Research

Three ways to get involved in CBE research:

  1. The CBE Office of Research holds regular meetings to discuss scholarship within and related to the College. Our 2021-2 meeting schedule includes:
    • October 11: CBE Research Leadership meeting — We invite leaders in the college’s centers, labs, as well as PIs, to come together to discuss current and future concerns related to research. We will brief attendees on topics from central administration, share issues and best practices from CBE Office of Research and CBE Planning and Budgeting, and provide attendees a forum to share best practices and ask questions they may have.
    • November 8: CBE Staff Who Do Research meeting — CBE-OR holds regular meetings with research scientists and other staff who actively do research. Come discuss the unique perspectives, challenges and priorities.
    • January 24: CBE Research Administrators meeting — We’ll be hosting an annual meeting just for those in the College and its departments, centers, and labs who support research. We’ll share updates and discuss the particular issues, resources and support needs for research administrators.
    • February 14 — Special Topic TBD
