Please join us for monthly REAL (Researchers, Educators And Leaders) Lunches to engage in conversations about research, grants, and collaborations. If you would like to make a brief presentation about your research for feedback from colleagues, contact Dr. Jeff Marshall.

All lunches are scheduled from 12:30-1:30 p.m. and will be virtual until further notice. As these virtual conversations occur over lunch, the format is a bit informal. Faculty and graduate students are encouraged to include kids or other family members “at their lunch table.”
