Upcoming Events

Mar 06 08:00 AM • Children's Mercy Research Institute 2024 Research Symposium Join us as we discuss Mentoring and Career Development with keynote speaker Laura Lunsford, Ph.D. This all day event will include breakout sessions and a poster session with reception. Lunch will be provided.  Mar 13 09:30 AM • Virtual NIH Seminar: How Does Diversity Impact Innovation in Team Science? This virtual seminar will be held in collaboration with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and will offer perspectives on diversity in team science-related data findings from the United States and the United Kingdom. The panelists will describe approaches to improve training, foster inclusive teamwork, and impact leadership in the scientific workforce and the outcomes of this work. Mar 14 03:00 PM • In-person and Virtual Addressing the Healthcare Needs of Kansas City's Unhoused For a litany of social and economic reasons, the U.S. unhoused population sits close to half a million and at approximately 1800 on any given night in Kansas City. A March 2023 study out of the University of Chicago found homelessness is associated with 60 percent greater mortality risk than poverty alone and non-elderly people who have experienced homelessness face 3.5 times higher mortality risk than people who are housed. This IQ Forum offers insights from four subject-matter-experts on the health of unhoused populations regionally and nationally, along with strategies and considerations in addressing this crisis.  
Mar 15 11:00 AM • Virtual March Open Forum on Biostatistics The Open Forum on Biostatistics is a service provided by the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) function of Frontiers, our institutions Clinical and Translational Science Institute.  The purpose of this forum is to provide investigators with an opportunity to ask questions related to BERD topic areas.  These may relate to research and training, and the forum provides a new avenue to connect with colleagues in support of the research and education missions of the BERD function of Frontiers.  This meeting is open to staff and faculty from all Frontiers Partner Institutions. You can email BERD navigator Megan Tremblay mtremblay@kumc.edu if you have any questions prior to the forum. The forum will be hosted by two biostatisticians of the BERD function of Frontiers. Join here.    Mar 27 01:00 PM • Virtual Team Science Workshop with Jeni Cross, Ph.D.: Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion The Frontiers Team Science Function is announcing our upcoming Team Science Workshop on the topic of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI). The workshop will be held virtually over Zoom on Wednesday, March 27 from 1 pm to 3 pm CT. The workshop will be presented by recognized Science of Team Science expert Dr. Jeni Cross. JEDI is a core domain of Team Science, comprised of the following competencies: 1) Cultivating belonging; 2) Valuing diversity; 3) Equity (allocating resources to overcome patterns of inequality); 4) Justice (dismantling barriers in teams, institutions, and profession); and 5) Transformative habits. Mar 28 12:00 PM • Virtual Research and Discovery Grand Rounds: Addressing the Needs of the Catchment Area at the KU Cancer Center In this session, Ronald Chen, M.D., MPH, FASCO, FASTRO, the Brandmeyer Endowed Professor and Chair of the Department of Radiation Oncology at KU Medical Center, clinical service chief with the University of Kansas Health System, and associate director for health equity at KU Cancer Center, will speak about how the KU Cancer Center looks at the bidirectional nature of research and how it defines and examines its impact on the catchment area.
