On March 18th, the CPH Research Office will initiate a series of monthly "Research Mentoring and Discussion Meetings." The primary purpose of these meetings is to support and facilitate the research efforts of our faculty. The current plan is to convene monthly "Research Mentoring and Discussion Meetings" and to rotate the location of each meeting until we are centralized here at the Health Sciences Campus. The first meeting will be held Tuesday, March 18th, from noon until 1 pm in the Department of Health Policy and Management's main conference room (Room 318) in the Bank of America Building. Pizza and beverages will be provided. Each "Research Mentoring and Discussion Meeting" will use the following format. I will provide a few brief updates related to funding opportunities and new or revised policies that might affect your research (e.g., new research-related policies from the IRB or OVRP). Following these updates, we will have an open-ended discussion during which time faculty can, among other things, pose questions to their peers regarding research, identify potential research collaborations among faculty, and identify additional research mentoring resources. I wish to emphasize that there is no "set-agenda" for these meetings; faculty can bring whatever research issues they have to the table and ask colleagues for their advice or ideas. While many discussions are expected to focus on the needs or interests of junior faculty, meetings are open to mid-career and senior faculty who can provide suggestions/mentoring to junior faculty or who may have subjects of their own that they wish to discuss with the group. I want to emphasize that these discussion groups are not limited to external funding matters. Discussion groups can focus on topics such as establishing a research program, preparing for a scientific presentation, manuscript preparation, or obtaining external funding. My hope is that, at the end of each discussion group, faculty members will feel more knowledgeable and better prepared to initiate or advance their research programs. I hope you will attend our first "Research Mentoring and Discussion Meeting" on March 18th. Please contact me at your convenience if you have any questions or if you wish to suggest some topics for discussion during the group. If possible, please let me know if you plan to attend the first meeting so I can prepare accordingly (e.g., have a sufficient number of handouts, order enough food, etc.). Timothy G.
