Explore research opportunities via “speed networking”

Still searching for your 2019 New Year’s Resolution? We have one for you: develop new research connections and collaborations.

An event on November 27 offered DMU faculty that opportunity. Faculty from all three colleges came together for the first “Speed Networking: Research Edition” activity. Following the speed dating format, participants spent five minutes learning about each other’s research projects with the goal of establishing some possible project partnerships.

A physical therapist talked with a pharmacologist.
A podiatrist exchanged ideas with an immunologist.
Clinicians discussed projects with a statistician.

Comments from the attendees included, “I could do this all afternoon,” and “I met faculty from other programs for the first time.” These interactions led them to start 2019 off with brand new research ideas and connections. Join us in helping you achieve your New Year’s Resolution and meet your new collaborator.
