Research Administrators serve an important role in supporting research which is why we want to annually celebrate the critical role they play at UC San Diego. Research Administrator Appreciation Day is one of the biggest events that the RA Training Program hosts. We always look forward to this day to appreciate all the hard work that research administrators put in to everything they do!
