Summer 2021 RAMS mini-forums: Research Refreshment
June, July, and August 2021: Fourth Thursdays at 12pm
This summer, RAMS forum will give you a break from the typical informational series. We want to give you a reason to listen to an interesting podcast about a family’s legacy related to research data sharing, watch a webinar about how your career can progress, and read a medical thriller about a murder linked to a clinical trial. Each month, we’ll meet and chat after you’ve had a chance to enjoy one of these offerings. Our facilitators will have discussion questions and we want to hear your reactions to the research refreshments you’ve consumed.
