Research Stories

Chronic wounds

UD's Millicent Sullivan and Kristi Kiick have received a $1.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health for research that could provide a new approach to the treatment of chronic wounds.

Prof. Heck's legacy

The American Chemical Society is highlighting the legacy of the late Nobel laureate Richard Heck, the Willis F. Harrington Professor Emeritus of Chemistry at the University of Delaware with a digital tribute on its publications website.

UD offers this in-person training session as part of the RCR program. Instruction in RCR is a requirement for all students (undergraduates and graduates) and postdoctoral researchers who receive funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to conduct research; and any individual supported by funds from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for training, research, education, and fellowship and career awards.

All other members of the UD research community are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Attendance will be tracked by scanning UD ID cards at different times throughout the day. Participation of graduate students is noted as a completed non-credit course on their transcript. 

Pre-registration is required and can be completed at this website.

Note that registration will close on Jan. 16. 

Online training is available throughout the year at this website for all those required to fulfill instruction in RCR and not able to attend the in-person session.
