We are all set for another great semester of CNAP brown bags. We are meeting on Wednesdays from 12:30-1:20 in Bluemont 5102. If anyone would like to join via zoom video conference, please contact our center at cnap@ksu.edu. This semester, we are having more project updates, research presentations from potential pilot grantees, faculty, and graduate students, professional development sessions, and some guest speakers. It should be a very rich semester. Program of speakers.

October 19, 2017

We hosted our first workshop by Mike Young on Bayesian Statistical Modeling in R. This was a test run of the workshop for our brown bag group and we hope to expand this for adding to our Scientific Exchange Network in the future. This was a great event and stimulated a lot of thinking about scientific rigor and reproducibility as well as ideas for how to use these techniques in our CNAP research programs.

Fall 2017

CNAP is holding its inaugural brown bag meetings on Wednesdays 11:30-12:30 during the fall semester in Bluemont 449. We will be joined via video conference by the group at Wichita state. This will be a great opportunity to share science and develop synergy across our group! Program of speakers.
