News & Announcements - Research Flash

November 4th, 2011


  • This TU Research FLash marks two milestones in the advancement of the Temple research enterprise.

    First the Senior Vice Provost for Research and Graduate Education is pleased to announce a new web design that will make it easier for both the Temple research community and visitors to our site to find the information they need. The web design team has worked with Dr. Blank and his staff for months in redesigning and recoding what we believe will be a much more user friendly site for our faculty, staff, researchers and visiting community. The new site not only offers the information and tools we need here at Temple, but also offers those outside the Temple community a glimpse into the exciting and groundbreaking research that is being done at Temple today. The new URL is The new site includes a calendar marking all of the important research related dates from each office within the Senior Vice Provost's portfolio. There you will see training dates, compliance board meeting dates, events for the Temple research community and more. Be sure to re-bookmark your important links.

    The second milestone is end of the Temple Research Flash as we know it today.
