Upcoming Topics for Research Brown Bag Meetings

Brown bag meetings are short, 1-hour talks or discussions held over the lunch hour on the Dallas campus. These are coordinated by the Dallas Office of Research and focus on varying and timely topics of interest. 

January 21, 2016 "Aiming to Perfect Your Specific Aims Page"     Noon - 1:00.  
The Specific Aims page is arguably the most influential piece of the research proposal, yet many researchers struggle with this important piece. This discussion will be led by Dr. Elaine Jackson who will present instructions for writing strong specific aims as well as a model for the narrative written to introduce the aims.  

September 18 "What's New with the TWU IRB?" Noon - 1:00 in room 3620
This discussion will be led by Tracy Lindsay, Director of Operations for Research and Sponsored Programs. The focus will be on an update of the dual review process and the status of Institutional Authorization Agreements (IAA). How are these alike and how do they differ? Tracy will also provide an update on any changes in the IRB submission process for the upcoming year.
