Time to Register for RAN!

Kathy DeWittDon't miss the February Research Administrators Network Meeting (RAN) with our guest emcee, Kathy DeWitt, Managing Project Representative of ORSP's Government Team and the 2017 recipient of U-M Office of Research (UMOR) Exceptional Service Award.

Along with updates on current U-M research administration news and events, February's featured presentation is "IRB Review at U-M: What Research Administrators Need to Know." 

We're also introducing a new segment you won't want to miss. With "Intro to Offices" we'll introduce you to the people and practices of three central offices and their touchpoints with research administration. Through these introductions, we will weave together the essential threads of the various U-M units that form our complex and rich research administration fabric!

Please join us!
