Research Interest Groups

With faculty-driven interest, the GGI sponsors multiple Research Interest Groups (RIGs) that are designed to foster cross-cutting interdisciplinary research. RIGs meet regularly to share research interests and exchange ideas. Products from RIGs may include mini-symposiums or workshops, new collaborations, and collaborative grant proposals. RIGS are open to Faculty, Staff, Postdocs and Graduate Students.
