Date: Thursday, September 12
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Helen Wood Hall, Classroom #1W-501

Don't Wait - Get Your ORCID Now!

Obtaining an ORCID (or Open Researcher and Contributor ID) enables researchers to take control of their scholarly identity and distinguish their research from the work of others. It is a unique personal identifier that connects to all of your work and professional activities, including grant applications and conference presentations. This data can be used across the scholarly communications network. UR has also initiated ORCID projects that will help streamline activity reporting within our own systems. View this short video to learn more.
For assistance obtaining an ORCID profile, contact your UR designated librarian. For general questions, contact Lauren Di Monte.

Collaborative Innovations in Pharmaceutical Product Development Conference

For more than ten years, the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Technology & Education (NIPTE) has collaborated with industry, academia and government to identify and solve the world’s pharmaceutical challenges. To that end, NIPTE is hosting the Collaborative Innovations in Pharmaceutical Product Development Conference in Arlington, VA  from Wednesday, October 2 to Friday, October 4.
There is no cost to attend the conference; however, advance registration is required.
If you wish to present a poster, you must be registered to attend the conference by Monday, September 16 for consideration. Learn more.

NIH Loan Repayment Programs 

The NIH Loan Repayment Programs are a set of programs established by Congress and designed to recruit and retain highly qualified health professionals into biomedical or biobehavioral research careers. Awardees can receive up to $100,000 of qualified educational debt repayment with a two-year contract. The application cycle closes on Friday, November 15.
