Today In Illinois Research

 

There Is a Season ...

It's a season of change in the OVCRI, and with apologies to the Byrds (Turn! Turn! Turn!), I'm thinking a lot about transitions as we race toward the end of the semester and the year's shortest days.

In January, Patricia Jones will join our team to lead the OVCRI's research support and compliance programs. Patty, who comes to us from the Beckman Institute, recently served as the Interim Director of the Office for the Protection of Research Subjects.
