Peterson and Noehren Receive NIH BIRT Grant with Wake Forest University

Congratulations to Charlotte Peterson, PhD who recently received another NIH Building Interdisciplinary Research Team (BIRT) award, this time as a subaward with Wake Forest University.  Peterson (Principal Investigator) will collaborate with Brian Noehren, PT, PhD and researchers at Wake Forest on their one-year project, entitled Strength training and arthritis trial, to investigate quadriceps muscle weakness associated with knee osteoarthritis; the team will identify those most at risk for muscle weakness and those who are unlikely to respond to standard exercise regimens. The Wake Forest team will lead the project on recruitment of subjects and muscle biopsies and the Peterson lab will conduct all biopsy analyses. This project uses an interdisciplinary team approach to basic and translational research.

Panel Discussion - #Altmetrics: Demystifying the Link between Research Impact and Social Media

UK Libraries invites you to a panel discussion about alternative metrics (altmetrics) and research assessment: #Altmetrics: Demystifying the Link between Research Impact and Social Media Tuesday, October 22, from 3:00-4:30 p.m., UK Athletics Auditorium, W. T. Young Library.

As social media has become a day-to-day communication avenue, more scholars have turned to it to share ideas and comment on research studies. Although these online interactions may contribute to research assessment, they are not accounted for by traditional impact metrics. To address this new scholarly communication landscape, some academics have asserted the importance of altmetrics. UK Libraries will host a panel discussion during Open Access Week (Oct. 21-27) to encourage a fruitful conversation about altmetrics and research assessment. Three UK faculty members will provide an overview of altmetrics, address the perceptions of them from the perspectives of author and journal editor, and discuss metrics for research assessment and faculty evaluation at UK. Details of this event are available on the website.
