February 11th Laboratory Safety
Host: Gary M. Baker (CHEM); Presenter: Andy Small (CHEM, Lab Manager)
Practicing safe research and adopting safe practices in all laboratory settings is of paramount concern. Laboratory safety is more than following policies and procedures or complying with regulations. This presentation will discuss steps taken at NIU to promote a safety culture as a core value among graduate students.
March 4th Data Management
Host: Shannon Wapole (ORCI); Presenter: Thomas Pavkov (HHS) , Lucy Bilaver (HHS), Karl Pettitt (NIU LIB), TJ Lusher (NIU LIB)
