Research Development Groups

Research Development Groups bring together faculty from different disciplines across the University around particular topic areas to engage in research development with the goal of fostering new interdisciplinary collaborations, evaluating funding opportunities, and submitting research proposals and joint publications. IWH has several active research development groups and is always looking to add new topic areas.  

Examples of Research Development Groups:

  • Interpersonal Violence and Sexual Assault – Co-chaired by Kellie Carlyle and Abigail Conley 
  • Perinatal Mental Health – Co-chaired by Patricia Kinser and Susan Bodnar-Deren 
  • Addiction and Women’s Health – Co-chaired by Dace Svikis and Caitlin Martin
