About Research in Progress Rounds

Research in Progress Rounds is a semi-annual event that offers researchers of any experience level (students, novice and experienced investigators) the opportunity to present their research plans or progress to date and to receive feedback from the diverse research community at St. Joe’s. All presenters must be affiliated with The Research Institute, or under the supervision of an affiliated researcher in good standing.

Any investigator conducting research at St. Joe's is eligible to participate. This forum is an ideal opportunity for early career researchers, grad students, post-docs, and junior faculty members. Join us for the next session (B) on August 16, 2022 at 1:00pm (tentative; Zoom registration link will be available closer to the event).
