Research Hot Topics Webinar Series

Research regulations are constantly evolving, as are University policies designed to keep pace with them. RII is launching a new monthly Zoom series, Research Hot Topics, to help you - faculty, researchers, staff, postdocs and grad students - keep up with these changes, clear up confusion and ensure compliance and integrity in the impactful work you do.

Experts from RII Operations will present and will be on hand to answer questions on the topic of the day as well as any other research questions you have. From understanding award and contracting processes and data privacy to understanding safety and conflict of interest, we want to make sure you have the updated information you need, when you need it.
