RG 1

The success of goal RG1 will be demonstrated by meeting RG2. Indicators that progress is being made on RG1 are (1) within each thrust, significant progress is reported annually by faculty and observed by publications and presentations, and (2) each graduate student and postdoc reports their research visit contributed towards the progress of their research. If there is a lack of progress in any thrust or if any research visits are found to be unproductive, then the evaluation can identify this early for the PI to address and ensure success moving forward. Data will be collected from post-internship interviews with graduate students and postdocs, as well as annual faculty interviews.
