Monthly Research Progress Meetings

The Center's activities for its previous years are archived below. The schedule for the 2012-2013 academic year is listed under "Upcoming Meetings". In addition to monthly research progress meetings, UW seminars held this past year in this research area are listed. Financial support for some of these seminars was provided by the P01 and T32 associated with the center, and trainees and mentors are encouraged to attend.

The Research Progress meeting combines a journal club, a research seminar and a steering committee meeting. Trainees supported by the T32 grant and individual NIDA-NRSA awards are expected to attend.

Research Progress Meeting format: As this is a diverse group, the format for the Research Progress meetings is to have the speaker start by briefly (15-25 min) presenting a research paper that would serve as an introduction or background to the presentation. The paper is distributed ahead of time, and the audience reads it before the meeting. Then the presenter describes his/her objectives, approaches, progress, and future plans for the remainder of the 90 min. These are intended as learning sessions, so frequent interruptions for questions are encouraged. Thus far, we have maintained an informal and interactive tone.

Lunch is served.
