GPSC Research Website Survey
Posted by Huzaifa Shipchandler on March 24, 2016

The Research Committee just launched a survey! One goal of this committee is to create a website that helps researchers recruit participants, and helps human subjects find research to participate in.  We think that this website will help graduate student research by giving researchers a comprehensive place to advertise their research. Also, through this website, we can reach out to the people potentially interested in participating in research. This will create a stronger research community and become easier for anyone to take part in research at Texas A&M.

Before launching this big project, we would like to receive your ideas as your department’s representative and as a graduate student what you would like from this website. We encourage any graduate or professional student who is familiar with human and/or animal subject studies to fill this survey. You can find the survey link below.
