Regulatory Knowledge & Support Core
The Regulatory Knowledge & Support Core (RKSC) is crucial to Rush's emphasis on translational research and support of the research community. The goal of the RKSC will be to develop and incorporate best practices in research management through an effective, integrated, and sustainable campus-wide program. This is being accomplished by close collaboration among all offices of research administration:
Rush University Forum 2009 (April 15-16)
The Rush University Forum for Research and Clinical Investigation provides an opportunity to showcase research of faculty and students and to foster awareness of research at Rush University Medical Center and its affiliated institutions.
Investigators engaged in basic, clinical, or applied research in various disciplines will have an opportunity to share their work during research forum events, to get to know one another, and to explore new collaborative possibilities.
