Calling All Minority-Serving Research Centers within the AUCD Network!
Tuesday, May 19, 2020
5:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. ET
The Langston University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center in partnership with AUCD are hosting a national informational webinar for AUCD centers affiliated with minority-serving institutions.
Researchers from Langston University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (LU-RRTC) on Research and Capacity Building for Minority Entities will provide an overview of available Technical Assistance opportunities for AUCD centers as well as current research projects. Specifically, LU-RRTC team would provide details about one of their key projects that focuses on seeking information from key informants on challenges and opportunities research centers experience in their effort to generate new knowledge that informs policy, practice, and research. Key informants for this project would be personnel (Principal investigators (PI), Co-investigators, Fellows, and research associates) affiliated with the MSI-based centers.
LU-RRTC will use the study findings to highlight visibility of high-quality research created through MSI-based research centers. The LU-RRTC will also use study findings to make recommendations to policy makers, NIDILRR and other federal research funding agencies, and other stakeholders on how to address identified challenges.
The webinar will feature:
- A presentation on LU-RRTC mission, goals, and objectives.
- An overview of available TA opportunities and current research projects.
- An Introduction to a current research participation opportunity examining Federally Funded MSI-Based Research Centers' Strategies for Advancing the Disability/Rehabilitation or Health Science.
- Participants will learn study participation eligibility criteria.
