Welcome!

Welcome to Research Accelerator, the research blog of the Milken Institute School of Public Health at The George Washington University. Dr. Kimberly Horn, Associate Dean for Research, is the primary author, but we occasionally invite guest bloggers. Our primary audience is the School’s faculty, staff, and students, but the blog is open to the public. This blog supports and celebrates research excellence at our School by sharing updates on our research and our investigators, recent grants and awards, upcoming funding opportunities, and insights on timely topics. Ultimately, the purpose is to equip our investigators with current resources and to promote communication, collaboration, and success. We also want to hear from you, our audience. To make this blog as useful as possible, we encourage you to comment on posts or use the suggestion box to propose topics for  future posts.  New information will be added several days a week—we encourage you to visit the blog at least weekly. So, keep your eye on the Milken Institute School of Public Health research enterprise; exciting things are happening every day!
