Researchpalooza 2011

Hosted by the UMMS Office of Research on August 22nd during the annual UMHS Ice Cream Social, Researchpalooza 2012 was bigger and better than ever, with...

  • 60 exhibiting labs and departments
  • 500+ "Wheel of Fortune" winners
  • Over 3,000 faculty and staff visitors
  • Tons of fun and valuable information!

The Office of Research sponsored multiple grand prizes for research faculty and staff, with winners including...

$2,000 toward professional travel...Justine Pinskey
iPad...Mae Huynh
$100 gift card (each)...Margaret Conlon, Shabbir Hussain, Neha Shah, and Jocelyn Webber

In addition to the lucky grand prize winners, a "Spirit Award" was presented to the participating organization whose display was the most friendly and creative, and offered the clearest information about the service they provide researchers. While Pediatric Research Office and MICHR received honorable mentions, it was the team from the Laboratory for Physical Activity & Exercise Intervention Research who took home the trophy and top honors.

Blessed with fine late-summer weather and huge turnout, Researchpalooza 2012 will go down in the record books as a fun event where colleagues and friends met, mingled, and learned more about many of the organizations that offer their services to research faculty and staff of the U-M Medical School. We love research and all of the talented people who make it possible!
