State of Research Address

Wednesday, November 6, 2013 - 1:30pm to 2:45pm
Ohio Union, U. S. Bank Conference Theater

Plan to attend the annual State of Research address given by Caroline Whitacre, vice president for research. Learn more about the breadth, scope, and excellence of Ohio State’s research programs and gain insight into how university researchers are making connections to tackle society’s most pressing issues. 

We face many challenges in our pursuit of research eminence. The fiscal concerns that plague the country will have ramifications for university research. What effect will sequestration and the government shutdown have on Ohio State research programs? How can the university continue to advance discovery, drive innovation, and help shape the world’s future? Dr. Whitacre will answer these questions and discuss strategies for conducting research in the current economic environment.

At the conclusion of the address, Dr. Whitacre will present the 2013 Innovator of the Year, Early Career Innovator of the Year, and Student Innovator of the Year awards. Join us for a reception honoring the winners in Woody’s Tavern immediately following the announcement.
