WOW Flyer Feb2020- 11x17

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 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.

Review CCFF and Dean's Research Chair intramural funding applications!

In order to ensure that applications made to these programs are fairly evaluated, we rely on reviews from members of the CCAS community.

Get to know your colleagues better, find potential future collaborators, and gain experience of different proposal types. Additionally, being a reviewer benefits the wider college and is a form of service that you can record on your annual report in Lyterati.

Reviewers will be needed in January for the Dean's Research Chair and in February / March for the CCFF program. The more internal reviewers we can identify, the lighter the load that any given reviewer has to carry.

Please record your willingness to serve as reviewer for CCAS intramural funding opportunities on this form.

Note that all reviews will be anonymized before sharing with the PI of the proposal. Each proposal is 3 - 6 pages in length.

Thank you for your assistance in maintaining our strong intramural funding programs!

Tuesday, December 17 2:00 - 3:30 pm

Marvin Center, 311

Discussion led by Dr. Kathleen Griffith, member of the GW Cancer Center, and Dr. Keith Crandall, director of the Computational Biology Institute.
