Data Discussion: The Cushing Center and the Cushing Tumor Registry

Thursday, 2/15, 11am-12pm

You may have seen the Cushing Center, with brains, photographs and more - but have you heard the story of how the collection came to be, and how researchers are still using these samples today?  Join Cushing Center Coordinator Terry Dagradi and Research and Education Librarian Kate Nyhan to discuss the continuing life of this extraordinary collection.
The Cushing Center will be closed for construction on 2/15, so we will meet in the medical library alcove. You're welcome to drop by at any time in the eleven o'clock hour!

 

Practical Data Research Management Workshop

Thursday, 2/15, 4-5pm

Planning how you'll manage your research data will save you time and trouble.  This workshop will discuss moments of "data management risk" and practical approaches to data management that you can apply in your own work.  Join Research and Education Librarian Kate Nyhan and Access Services/Clinical Librarian Ayssa Grimshaw and leave this workshop with a checklist of practical next steps in data management.  

Register for the Practical Research Data Management Workshop.
