I hope that you enjoy The Arkansas Catalyst, the monthly newsletter from the office of research and innovation. The newsletter highlights exciting research and innovation activities on the University of Arkansas campus.

You can view the October issue of The Arkansas Catalyst newsletter online.

The October issue features several upcoming events and updates, including trainings and workshops, new staff at the VPR office and a link to the new Research Analytics section of the website. It also includes information about research tools available to faculty and students and an essay on using visual abstracts to promote research papers.

Each month will feature university researchers and new research funding. The newsletter will introduce you to staff in different office departments, including Technology Ventures, Research and Sponsored Programs, Research Compliance and the Arkansas Research and Technology Park. We will also use the newsletter to announce new researcher tools.

The office of research and innovation is working to enhance the university research enterprise, including multi-disciplinary research. Future newsletters will also focus on the six interdisciplinary research strengths at the U of A: health, energy and environment, nanoscience and engineering, supply chain logistics and transportation, food safety, and American art, architecture and the humanities.

We hope that this newsletter will be useful to the research community. If you have suggestions on topics that should be included, please let us know.
