Speed Networking for the Science of Intervention

For educators, health workers, social workers, artists, and inventors, theoretical viewpoints have their limits when trying to understand the true problems experienced by students, patients, subjects and projects. Studies are needed on the most pragmatic approaches, tools and interventions used in our everyday practice. Researchers interested in intervention studies measure the impact of applied models, study instruments, methods, techniques and outreach strategies. Disciplines interested in intervention studies may include: clinical nursing, pharmacy practice, social work, sociology, public policy, education, engineering, and others.

This year, the SIUE Office of Research and Projects is offering a series of networking events designed to encourage collaboration among and communication between SIUE’s research experts. Practice your 3-minute “elevator speech” as you participate in a fast-paced, fun event meant to expose you to the excellent research on campus and inspire you to establish new, productive relationships.  Researchers will share their topics in accelerated fashion with a group of researchers sharing similar interests.

Interested attendees must R.S.V.P. Seats are limited. Some preparation required—an inquiring mind and willingness to talk to others a must!

Speed Networking for Research in Identity, Diversity and Inclusion

Ideas of Self and Other are fundamental to human societies. Who we believe ourselves to be and not to be shapes our notions of community, our ability to act in the world, as well as our civil, social, biomedical and technological structures. But while modern society propels us to build ever more rapid and complex systems and networks, our notions of self and other are still influenced by tradition, culture, religion, race, sex, sexuality, ethnicity and other deeply-rooted factors. Researchers in this area are interested in the multiple identities and perspectives that exist in a complex modernity and the politics of inclusion and exclusion that accompany them.  Some look for practical ways we can bridge the gaps in our differences and ensure that the marginal or underserved receive equal treatment and access. Researchers in this area may come from the humanities, social sciences, education, business, health fields, or science and engineering.

Speed Networking for Sustainability Research

Sustainability research focuses on a key principle of sustainability (such as social equity or environmental stewardship), addresses a sustainability challenge (such as climate control or poverty), or furthers our understanding of the interconnectedness of societal, environmental, and economic challenges. Sustainability research leads toward solutions that support economic prosperity, social well-being, and ecological health. As this topic is crosscutting, sustainability researchers may be based science, engineering, social science, business, humanities, and health, but interests can be truly interdisciplinary in nature.

PRIM&R at Your Doorstep

On April 23, the SIUE Graduate School’s Office of Research and Projects will be bringing national experts to campus to conduct an all-day training workshop on the protection of human subjects in clinical research. Since 1998, Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research (PRIM&R) has been educating compliance personnel, institutional officials, and researchers on how to understand and apply the latest regulations and ethical principles governing research with human subjects. Interested regional researchers can attend the entire workshop (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) or portions of it. Topics include an overview of the criteria for approval of research, IND/IDE, informed consent, research with biological specimens, and unanticipated problems and adverse events. The free workshop will be held in the Redbud/Oak Room in the Morris University Center. RSVPs are not needed.
