The next seminar in the Professional and Academic Development (PAD) series, a free career development seminar series for WSU faculty, chairs and directors, postdoctoral trainees, senior graduate students, and administrators will be: What are University Cores and How Are They Accessed?.

University cores are specialized shared research facilities. The goal of university cores is to make technology and expertise available to WSU researchers. This PAD seminar will assist us in heightening the awareness of WSU cores so more researchers can take advantage of these resources.

The moderator for this session will be Gloria Heppner, associate vice president for research. Panelists will be Susan Land, director, Applied Genomics Technology Center; David Coleman, director, Nano-Fabrication Facility; Connie Claybaker, assistant director, Karmanos Cancer Institute; Guangzhao Mao, co-director of Nano Incubator Program and professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science; Dougas Ruden, associate professor, Institute of Environmental Health Sciences; and Kami Moin, director, Microscopy and Imaging Resources Laboratory.

The panelists will discuss:

  • What is a university core?
  • What are some of the cores at WSU?
  • What is the perspective of facility users over the years and now?
  • How do I enhance my research through the use of university cores?
  • How do I get in touch with the cores?
  • What should I expect of core facilities?

We hope you can join us for this important session!

Seminars are free, but registration is required.
