At the end of May, Marshfield Clinic Research Institute hosted the third of three in-person writing workshops, a collaboration with University of Wisconsin’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR).

Several researchers and staff braved local storm damage to travel to Marshfield to watch David Puthoff from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) and Jen Merems from UW-Madison deliver scientific writing best practices. With topics ranging from passive voice to argumentation, attendees then analyzed a short writing sample and discussed the applicability of these topics to their own work.

ICTR and ORSP plan to host another writing workshop series next year. Additional information will be shared in November or December.
