This research seminar combines a panel discussion (moderated by Prof. Dr. Jelena Spanjol, LMU) with a presentation of research projects, exploring how medical/health and business/marketing researchers can collaborate on interdisciplinary projects. The seminar will highlight the opportunities and benefits as well as challenges and costs of research partnerships across very different disciplines. Practical tips will be given on ways to navigate the complexities, along with examples of interdisciplinary research. The seminar will be given by Dr. Lisa Sharp of the University of Illinois Chicago (Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Biobehavioral Nursing Science in the College of Nursing) and Dr. Cheryl Nakata of the University of North Carolina Greensboro (Joseph M. Bryan Chair of Innovation and Professor of Marketing at the Bryan School of Business and Economics). The two presenters have been working together with several others on interdisciplinary studies for more than a decade.
