  • CLP Core Crawl

    July 12, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
    Silverman Hall, East Lobby, 2170 Campus Drive, Evanston, IL 60208

    This two-hour lively and interactive event encourages researchers to socialize, network and “crawl” between ten core facilities located in the Richard and Barbara Silverman Hall for Molecular Therapeutics and Diagnostics, located at 2170 Campus Drive on the Evanston campus. Core managers and staff will showcase the innovative research and discoveries taking place within Silverman Hall by leading tours through their facilities. Participants have the opportunity to learn how the cores work together to advance potential therapeutics from the discovery phase to prepare for human clinical trials. Participants are given tickets by each core they visit which are valid towards pizza, beer samplings and raffles. By the end of the event, “crawlers” can make their way outside to the Silverman Hall courtyard for food and fun. The expo features 8 core facilities and 3 centers of excellence. Facility managers and staff will showcase their innovative biomedical expertise, research and services available to all researchers in greater Chicago. Learn how the centers and cores work together to advance potential therapeutics and diagnostics from the early stages of discovery through pre-clinical testing.
