Being a member of MCIRCC is more than attending a seminar.

It is a highly-experienced network of investigators, clinicians, engineers and scientists. It is being on the cutting edge of critical care research at the University of Michigan. It is a community dedicated to finding new and innovative ways to monitor, diagnose and treat critically ill and injured patients. MCIRCC’s wealth of resources can be a huge benefit for undergraduate and graduate students interested in critical care, research, innovation, or commercialization of new products.

Valuable resources for student members:

  • Network with MCIRCC investigators, physicians, scientists, & engineers.

  • Receive ‘The Catalyst’, MCIRCC’s monthly newsletter.

  • Mentorship by MCIRCC’s Commercialization Coach, Ken Spenser regarding commercialization strategies and establishing a commercialization roadmap.

  • Attend and observe all member events, seminars, symposia and educational opportunities offered through MCIRCC, including the Visiting Scholar Series, the Re-Imagining Critical Care Seminar Series, and the Grand Challenge.

(MCIRCC’s core member benefits (proposal development unit, clinical research, data science team, etc.) are only available to U-M faculty or staff members. Students may access these benefits by working directly with an MCIRCC faculty member who are using them to develop or carry out MCIRCC related projects.)
