Anyone engaging in research or scholarly activity at GW including, under- and graduate students, administrative staff, researchers, postdocs and faculty, is encouraged to attend.

The GW Postdoc Association (GWPA) will host a career panel with speakers that can advise GW postdocs on both industry and academic careers, a workshop that will teach how to perfect a short “elevator pitch” about research, and a round of poster presentations by GW postdocs.

Submissions for poster presentations are welcome; prizes will be awarded for the top three posters.

Please nominate outstanding mentors that are shaping careers of postdocs for the GWPA Mentorship Award. GWPA wants to recognize these deserving colleagues.

Registration and Nomination Deadline: September 1, 2019

Date: Thursday, September 19, 2019
Time: 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM
Location: Science and Engineering Hall, Basement Level 1

Lunch and snacks will be provided.

RCR Workshop: The Intersection of Human Research, Privacy, Consent and Data Sharing

Marvin Center, Room 402-404

July 25, 2019 -- 2:00 – 3:30 p.m.

The Office of Research Integrity is hosting a Responsible Conduct of Research session on a case study from Duke University in which an image dataset was removed by university officials after public outcry and determinations of non-compliance.

The intersection of human subjects, privacy protections, and human rights is highlighted in
the Duke case, which also represents modern research ethics concerns for all researchers, and is applicable across all research disciplines.

In March 2018, President Trump imposed a 25% duty on steel and a 10% duty on aluminum. Most countries are covered by these tariffs but some have negotiated quotas with the United States. National security tariffs are now looming for automobiles and auto parts, and section 232 investigations are underway for uranium and titanium sponge.
Two expert panels will examine: 
  • The arcane law and its limits as tested by litigation.
  • Proposed legislation to restrict the President’s authority.
  • The steel and aluminum tariffs and the product exclusion process, and how these have impacted US manufacturers and global supply chains.
  • The effect of such tariffs on the auto industry.
  • The impact on the negotiation of free trade agreements.

Description: Once again, we are organizing an NSF CAREER workshop aimed at junior faculty for their submissions. This will begin with a presentation by Dr. Ken Chong, followed by 1-1 meetings with Dr. Carl Batt (some of you are already in touch with Dr. Batt). Past CAREER recipients are welcome to join to share your expertise, especially in the presentation on May 3, or act as faculty mentor for our CAREER submission applicants. Lunch will be provided.

The SEH WoWTALK (What’s Our Work) series began in 2016 in an effort to bring together researchers in or related to SEH to present their work and explore collaboration potentials. By now, 12 events have taken place featuring 41 talks by 42 speakers from CCAS, SEAS, SMHS, Public Health, and OVPR.

Here, we would like to hear from you on possible outcomes from this event series. This could be joint papers, joint proposals, or other forms of collaborations that have benefited from the WoWTALK series. You can enter your input in this brief web form:

The WOWTALK (What’s Our Work) Series brings together colleagues and students from disciplines associated with GW's Science and Engineering Hall—and related fields—to present new research and share ideas. These short talks (15-20 minutes each) are designed to introduce members of the GW community to current and exciting research projects undertaken in labs in the SEH, to initiate discussion, collaborate, share expertise, and to promote research performed in the SEH and at GW.
