Our work together
Over the past several months, each of us have witnessed or read about the senseless and horrifying acts that have led to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. My colleagues and I are saddened and angered by these tragic events and we know they are not limited to the recent past. We have seen this time and again in our history and throughout the past 400 years. This must end.

Thanks to support from Ohio States Office of Research and Office of Outreach and Engagement, the assistant professor of environmental health sciences is using his expertise in computational epidemiology to develop a shared data resource for agencies and organizations that are responding to COVID-19 and leading recovery efforts across Ohio.
Getting the perspective of the community on community-engaged research
As land-grant universities such as Ohio State encourage more community-based research by faculty and funders such as the National Science Foundation incentivize more collaboration between researchers and communities, one critical voice in the process is often missing the perspective of the community member. A new study being undertaken by four Ohio State faculty members looks to establish best practices for including the community perspective as they look at how large, land-grant research institutions can build meaningful community relationships while conducting research.
