The in-person Research-in-Progress (RIP) sessions play an integral role for cultivating the vibrant intellectual environment that elevates our Department of Biomedical Informatics. RIPS provide our PhD students and postdocs an invaluable opportunity to learn how to present science, interact with their peers, and receive valuable suggestions and insightful feedback from faculty.  Students/Postdocs can learn more about RIP guidelines here.
