Team science workshop: Working together to maximize impact

April 15, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Addressing complex modern-day problems increasingly requires a collaborative approach where multiple areas of expertise converge to address a common research goal.

As team-based research has become more prevalent in today’s sponsored research environment, being prepared to lead or to engage with research teams can expand research opportunities and research impact.

This workshop provides foundational information about team science, including tips and resources at U-M and beyond that support team science initiatives. Highlights include a demonstration of the Michigan Research Experts database, an overview of UMMS and MICHR resources available for team science initiatives, and a discussion with a panel of faculty members who have successfully garnered collaborative or large-scale funding.

Following this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Recognize the benefits of using a team science approach
  • Distinguish between a collaboration and an integrated research team
  • Recognize key elements of a successful research team
  • Identify internal and external resources that support or facilitate team science

The faculty panel participants for this workshop include:

  • Kevin Ward, M.D., professor, Departments of Emergency Medicine and Biomedical Engineering

Target Audience: Faculty who wish to pursue collaborative or large-scale funding opportunities

The event will take place from 10 a.m. until noon on Thursday, May 23 in BSRB, seminar rooms A, B and C.
