Spotlight on Advanced Research

University of Dayton researchers will share their advances in scholarship to create conversation and spur cross-campus partnerships.

University of Dayton researchers will gather to present some of the most interesting research on campus during the Spotlight on Advanced Research and Scholarship from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, in Kennedy Union Boll Theatre and the Science Center Auditorium.

Topics will include race relations, theology, energy conservation, osteoarthritis, corporate social responsibility and aviation fuels, among others.

All five schools will be represented at the event. Researchers include six endowed chairs, two Ohio Research Scholars, two department chairs and a Research Institute group leader.

"The goals for this spotlight are to allow researchers an opportunity to showcase their work and make connections with each other in order to establish partnerships," said Mary Connolly, coordinator of bio-research initiatives in the University Office for Research.

Sixteen researchers will give 25-minute presentations, including a five-minute question-and-answer session. Sessions will occur concurrently in the Science Center Auditorium and Boll Theatre. Click on the related link for a schedule of speakers and topics.

"Presentations will highlight why the topic research is important, how the research connects with other disciplines, and how it impacts society at large," Connolly said. "The presentation style will target a general audience for broad appeal across disciplines."
