Every day our MCIRCC members achieve great things. You’re awarded a sizable grant, you publish a new, groundbreaking paper, or you discover something incredible in your innovative research. The goal of the Catalyst Newsletter has always been to tell those stories and get the word out about your great achievements.
Last month our members gathered for a few drinks at Arbor Brewing Company to kick-start our Innovation Underground series for the year. There were delicious food and drinks, prizes raffled, and even an impromptu pitch for funding—just what Innovation Underground is all about!
Last month, researchers from across U-M came together to hear from the nation’s leaders in traumatic brain injury (TBI) at MCIRCC’s Massey TBI Grand Challenge. The event kicked-off the competition, which funds innovative solutions that address the golden hours of care after severe TBI.
The U-M basketball teams aren't the only ones going for national glory in tournament play this March. A team of U-M Medical School scientists and physicians has a shot at a national title, too. But they need the support — and votes — of maize-and-blue fans everywhere.
In healthcare, we constantly seek new ways to deliver and improve care. Countless ideas have already been tried and tested, and people often think that coming up with the next great innovation requires thinking ‘outside of the box.’
