UCSF Recognizes Its Research Administrators with RA Day 2018 Celebration

Last updated on November 19, 2018

UCSF’s research administrators enjoyed networking, a delicious lunch, career development and straight talk from PIs in celebration of National Research Administrator Day on Tuesday, September 25.

“Thank you on behalf of all the UCSF investigators for every budget you prepared, every contract you negotiated, every invoice you sent, every report you prepared and every guideline you checked and double checked. We could never do our research without you,” UCSF Vice Chancellor of Research Lindsey Criswell told the research administrators gathered at the Millberry Union Conference Center and Gym.

UCSF RA Day 2018 invited research administrators to “Keep Calm and Research On” with an event that started with a career panel entitled “Things I Wish I Knew Earlier in My RA Career” and ended with a panel of principal investigators discussing “Confessions of a Principal Investigator: What Every Research Administrator Should Know.” In between sessions, RAs were given opportunities for networking to learn fun facts about colleagues and make new connections.
