"Research accessibility" usually refers to accessibility for research subjects or participants, or making research findings accessible to various audiences, but researchers themselves (including faculty, graduate students, and staff researchers) may have disabilities, impairments, health conditions, or other considerations that can make carrying out their research more difficult. This event will help such researchers connect with each other and contribute to making the U more aware of their experiences and possible ways to improve institutional support.About Erin Durban
