What’s Going on in Research

The School of Medicine issues a weekly email newsletter, Vital Signs, that covers ongoing research projects, new awards and appointments, and events. UNC personnel can submit news articles and event information to Vital Signs (Onyen log in required). If you have questions about Vital Signs, please contact , Strategic Communication Manager for the SOM.

If you have an exciting new project, discovery or publication Mark can help you connect with the news media outside of UNC. We encourage our investigators to help us get the word out about the exciting research going on at UNC
