September has officially settled in, which means resuming our monthly Tips & Tools meeting! We hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are gearing up for a very productive fall.
For those of you who may be unaware, our School of Medicine Research Administrative Services (RAS) team hosts a regular meeting (Tips & Tools) on the third Wednesday of each month. At these meetings, we highlight changes and information coming down both internally at Wayne, and from external agencies. Additionally – and perhaps most importantly – these meetings serve as a forum for research administrators to ask and answer each other’s questions, trouble-shoot, and give/request input on processes. These meetings began for the administrators of the departments at the School of Medicine, but we have many administrators attending from outside the SOM as well! If you are interested in attending, please send us a quick note expressing your interest (RAS@med.wayne.edu) and we’ll give you the details of time and place.
This month’s meeting will take place in one week (September 17, 2014) and will feature special guests Dr. Stephen Lanier (our new Vice President for Research at Wayne State; check out his Crain’s Q&A!) and Ms. Gail Ryan (Wayne’s Assistant Vice President for Sponsored Program Administration). Come with your questions; they’ll both have answers! We look forward to seeing you there.
