Research Week goes (partially) virtual
Unsurprisingly, all in-person events for Research Week 2020 are canceled.
Some events, however, are taking on a virtual shape—for example, Clinical Research Day and the keynote address by Kalisha Bonds still took place, and virtual abstract presentations are being held June 12.
Check back here or keep an eye on the OHSU Research News blog to stay up to date on the latest developments.
Abstract presentations are going virtual June 12
Abstracts submitted for Research Week 2020 will be presented virtually through WebEx on Friday, June 12. Due to the unusual circumstances, we will not distinguish between poster and oral presentations this year – all presentations will follow the same format. The presentations will be recorded, and there will be links provided for the OHSU community to view the presentations on WebEx after they are completed.
If you submitted an abstract and said you would like to participate in the virtual presentations, you will be hearing from Research Week administrators soon about your time slot and presentation room. Send any questions you have about this event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
OHSU Research and Innovation Awards
The OHSU Research and Innovation Awards event has been cancelled. However, OHSU researchers and faculty will be celebrated by Research and Innovation with the release of a program in mid-June. Awards from OHSU Technology Transfer and OHSU Collaborations and Entrepreneurship will also be recognized. If you (or a colleague you support) have been honored by a professional society, received a national, local, or regional award related to research, or recognized in other ways for research accomplishments, please let us know by filling out this form by May 27.
