The Buzz on Research gives you an opportunity to discuss various topics related to the research enterprise at the University of Arkansas. The vice chancellor and his team in attendance can provide specific information related to their area. Boosting faculty research productivity will be featured among the topics to be covered and discussed on Sept. 11. Those planning to submit external proposals for funding will find the discussion particularly useful.
