And the first of our 2 Keynote speakers, Sally Gore.  Here’s the abstract for Sally’s talk:

Sally’s presentation will use infographics and data visualization tools to tell – and show – how the she has built a network of professional colleagues and collaborators across the University’s campus. These relationships, with people in both the clinical and basic science areas, have created a number of successful outreach programs, grant-funded projects, and raised awareness of the Library’s resources and expertise. Additionally, they have enhanced the career of the speaker in numerous ways. With pictures, and a bit of humor, the audience will hopefully come away with some ideas and inspiration to start, or continue, building their own bridges to opportunities and partnerships.

Our second Keynote speaker, Dr. Katalin Gothard. Here’s the abstract for Dr. Gothard’s talk:

Dr. Gothard will talk about her research and how she communicates the importance of animals in research and what’s important for animal researchers to keep in mind as they proactively communicate their work with a variety of audiences. Dr. Gothard is a Professor in the departments of Physiology and Neuroscience at the University of Arizona Health Sciences, College of Medicine in Tucson. The broad goal of her research is to understand the neural basis of emotion and social behavior. She works with rhesus monkeys because their social organization resembles the organization of human societies. They also share with humans the use of facial expressions and various forms of social touch to communicate their emotions and intentions.
