Today In Illinois Research

 

Reset, Recharge, Refocus

As the temperatures soar and the happy buzz of commencement fades, the restorative days of summer break are upon us! Although research never truly stops, the more relaxed pace gives us time to recharge ourselves both professionally and personally—and to power up our batteries so that we can fully embrace the hustle and bustle of the fall semester.
