The Office of Research is inviting the UCI research community to attend one of two remaining informational town hall-style meetings,wherecurrent issues and their potential impact on the federal funding of research will be discussed. The first meeting—which took place this past Monday—was a great success. If you missed it please consider RSVPing for one of the next two.
