Office of Research: CORNET Symposium


TOMORROW: Join us for our first 2021 CORNET Symposium!

Based on the ideals of cross-disciplinary team science, the CORNET Awards were created to stimulate innovative, interdisciplinary, team research. CORNET Awards Symposia are held to honor award teams and provide award recipients an opportunity to present their findings and share their discoveries.

This symposium will feature seven CORNET awardees. Each will give a 15 minute presentation, followed by a 5-minute Q&A.
