Twenty-eight faculty and postdoctoral researchers from all areas of the college shared their research with each other through presentations and posters at the 2nd Annual Research Day, held on Feb. 17 at Thompson Library.
The event was organized by the associate dean for research, Chris Weghorst, Ph.D., and a committee of faculty and staff with the purpose of promoting inter-disciplinary education, conversation and collaboration.
“The second annual CPH Research Day was a great success due, in part, to the collaborative efforts of the planning committee as well as those who ultimately participated in the oral and poster presentations,” Weghorst said. “I received numerous positive comments focused on what a great opportunity the meeting provided to learn more about the great work being conducted by our faculty and postdoctoral researchers.”
Participants presented either an overview of their research or an individual research project. Twenty-one presented a 3-slide, 3-minute slideshow and seven participants displayed posters outlining their work.
“I hope that additional internal collaborations will subsequently develop based on the new conversations that took place,” Weghorst said. “I also look forward to working with the planning committee on next year’s Research Day and the potential inclusion of students research projects.”
