A Note from the Vice Provost for Research
Welcome to the new OVPR Research News at Tufts! This will continue the mission of the original Research News at Tufts, which has brought conversations with researchers and information on research-related topics to the Tufts community for over a decade. The Researchers articles provide background on new members of Tufts faculty as well as on a researcher at one of our affiliated hospitals. These articles also provide information on their current research projects and areas for potential collaboration. The Core Facilities/Centers articles offer information from the directors of these Tufts resources. The Events section provides news from recent research-related campus events.
Inside-the-OVPR articles provide office updates: tech transfer information in Office for Technology Licensing and Industry Collaboration, grant writing information in Office of Proposal Development, and news on human subject research in Institutional Review Board articles. Funded Research lists recent projects awarded funding and Issued U.S. Patents lists recently awarded patents. The short “DID YOU KNOW?” facts bring you up to date on what the OVPR has to offer, and the Archives section contains articles from past Research News at Tufts issues.
Research News at Tufts is part of the continuing effort of the provost’s office to foster an environment that supports and encourages research and collaboration. Other initiatives include Research Days and the seed grant programs Tufts Collaborates! and Technology Access Grants.
