CORNET Symposia Return this Fall

|

The Office of Research’s CORNET symposia are returning this fall.

Based on the ideals of cross-disciplinary team science, the CORNET Awards were created to stimulate innovative, interdisciplinary, team research. CORNET Awards Symposia are held to honor award teams and provide award recipients an opportunity to present their findings and share their discoveries.

A variety of collaborations, including internal, regional, and global, comprise the most recent award teams. These awardees will be presenting their findings virtually, over the course of three symposia scheduled for October 29, November 18, and December 10. The December 10 session is earmarked for the UTHSC/University of Memphis SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 CORNETs, awarded in August 2020. Dr. Steven Goodman, UTHSC Vice Chancellor for Research and Dr. Jasbir Dhaliwal, UofM Executive Vice President for Research and Innovation, will co-chair the December event.

We are excited about the return of this event!  Please REGISTER NOW for the October Symposium!
