Given an increasingly difficult funding climate, finding the research strengths of the university and focusing resources on those areas is a priority for Tufts.
After a year-and-a-half consultative process involving researchers from across the university, we are marking the beginning of this new phase of research with the OVPR hosting an all-day event on October 29 in Boston, called A Brighter World Through Research and Scholarship, to bring researchers from across the university together to network and brainstorm on these key thematic areas. The priority areas will be the focus, with lightning presentations from each of the funded collaborative groups, and opportunities for discussion with group members. There will also be a working lunch on using design thinking principles to facilitate collaboration across disciplines and a networking reception.
The eight teams/projects are: the Center for Integrated Management of Antimicrobial Resistance (CIMAR), the One Health-y Aging team , the Culture, History, and Translation project, Laboratory for Living Devices (L2D), the Climate and Energy project, The Equity in Health, Wealth, and Civic Engagement project, the Food and Water Nexus project, and the Global Obesity Collaborative.
