Research Briefs Bring Increased Awareness to U of M

November 27, 2018

As 2018 comes to a close, University Public Relations would like to express our gratitude to all of our communications colleagues who collaborated with us this past year on Research Briefs. Launched in January, Research Briefs have been highly successful in raising awareness of published research from U of M System faculty.

At the time of this writing, there have been 65 Research Briefs distributed to local, state, national, and international journalists. More than 40 have generated media coverage.

As a quick reminder, an online form is available to easily guide researchers when summarizing their published work. Please feel free to share the link with your faculty. If there are any questions, please contact Brad Robideau at He’s also available to visit faculty individually or in unit meetings to discuss the Research Brief process.

We look forward to another great year working with you!
