Research, Publications and Presentations
A study by Assistant Professor Hong Vu and Associate Professor Yvonnes Chen has found that factors at the national level are more likely to help combat the problem of overprescription and misuse of antibiotics rather than an individual approach. Read the KU News story.

Associate Professor Mugur Geana's co-authored paper " Development, acceptability, appropriateness and appeal of a cancer clinical trials implementation intervention for rural- and minority-serving urology practices " has been accepted for publication in the journal Trials. The manuscript stems from a two-year funded research and development of the Learn|Inform|Recruit intervention. A previous paper from the same research study, "Science in the Heartland: Exploring determinants of offering cancer clinical trials in rural-serving community urology practices" has been recently published in the journal  Urologic Oncology: Seminars and Original Investigations .

Frontiers, the University of Kansas Clinical and Translations Science Institute, has several funding opportunities and is interested in collaborating with multidisciplinary research groups, including mass communication. Several presentations and meetings with researchers are planned for the KU Lawrence campus. For more information, please check the Frontiers website .

The Experimental Research Media Lab is open for business this semester despite the construction inside Stauffer-Flint Hall. New experimental research capabilities have been added, including facial expression analysis of recorded videos. If you are interested in conducting experimental research in mass communication, testing your media messages, or are only interested in exploring the capabilities of ERML, please contact Dr. Mugur Geana or Dr. Joseph Erba .

Congratulations to Associate Professor Carol Holstead , whose article was accepted for publication in the Chronicle of Higher Education. The tentative title is “What’s in a name? A lot. Students say if you want to engage them, start with the basics, like learning their names." It is scheduled to appear Sept. 12. This study is based on the key findings of her own student surveys and other surveys she conducted with Associate Professor Peter Bobkowski .
