SOM Imagine, Innovate and Impact (I3) Awards

Innovation is the cornerstone of the emerging SOM Strategic Framework and is key to all three SOM missions: research, education, and clinical care. A key innovation strategy is to promote interdisciplinary and cross-departmental and -divisional research, i.e., collaborations at the boundaries of disciplines or research requiring input from scientists, clinicians, and/or educators in diverse disciplines. Problems in biology, medicine, and education today are often so complex that such approaches are necessary to tackle them successfully. Often novel insights emerge only when you juxtapose individuals with deep but disparate expertise around a common goal. Award details
