Are you curious about how nutrition research is done at Tufts? Interested in finding new ways to participate and contribute throughout the research process?
Join us for an engaging and hands-on event at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) at Tufts University to help demystify the research process! Learn about how research moves from idea to impact on health. Through group discussion and hands-on experiences of basic science labs, we are opening the doors to some of the Tufts health research facilities to find out how community members can work with researchers to address health research. The workshop will consist of:
- An overview ofthe research process
- A discussion of how Tufts CTSI is engaging with the community throughout the research process
- Visiting labs where clinical research is conducted
