Learn It, Teach It, Share It, and Innovate: The George Washington University InfoReady Story
How GW's Shari Thompson uses Infoready to direct, co-ordinate and facilitate their enormous volume of research activity.
A robust research program couldn’t possibly have been envisioned when Congress chartered what became George Washington University back in 1821. Today, however, GW is a major international R1 research institution with over 70 centers and institutes spanning science, technology, health, policy, global security, and arts and humanities.
Directing, coordinating and facilitating that enormous volume of research activity falls under the supervision of the Office of the Vice President of Research (OVPR), and one especially critical determinant of success is what happens at the pre-award level. That’s where Shari Thompson, Research Enhancement Analyst, brings her impressive skills and InfoReady’s capabilities to the fore.
