Future CoLAB Planning Sessions in the works

The University of Arizona Libraries - Science and Engineering Librarians are planning to present a CoLAB session for BIO5 faculty researchers this fall. Librarians have applied for human subjects approval to measure the success of CoLAB's networking process in terms of its effectiveness in eliminating barriers to collaborative thinking and future project ideas. This will provide the first true research results by measuring pre- and post attitudes towards collaborative potential among science faculty who may discover interdisciplinary connections with each other. I'll let you know what happens!

About BIO5: Launched with funds from a voter-approved tax in 2001, BIO5 is designed to fuel economic development by pursuing state-of-the-art biological research, by creating new products and processes, by encouraging productive research interactions between faculty and industrial scientists, by training a bioindustry workforce and enhancing science literacy
