Exceptional Collaborators

The Office of the Vice Dean for Research and Graduate Studies at Penn State College of Medicine wants to collect stories about those colleagues who are excellent collaborators.

Whether they were co-authors, mentors, data analysts, equipment or service providers or assisted in another way, the Office wants to recognize those collaborators whose support makes a difference.

As stories are received, the Office plans to forward them to the named individual. The submitter’s identity will not be disclosed unless permission is specifically granted to do so.

Stories about these collaborators may also appear on various College of Medicine websites and email newsletters.

The Office also wants to ensure faculty can find and use existing resources to discover potential collaborators and resources; a guide to some of those tools is also included here.
