Dear MCIRCC Member,
On behalf of the MCIRCC team we'd like to say welcome to Catalyst, our first e-newsletter!
Congratulations! You have opened the portal
to the MCIRCC Community's main hub of communication. Here, you expect to learn the latest news on MCIRCC's creative initiatives in critical care. Watch for information on new funding sources, like our $300K Challenge Event that is coming up, new industry and business collaborations, team research tools designed to foster MCIRCC product output, and the MCIRCC Connection, which will feature ways for MCIRCC members to connect in a variety of ways.
Robust communication among members through the clinical and domain expertise product lines can be found here, and will be the key to our success.
Since you're an MCIRCC member, you know that MCIRCC is unique in both its vision and strategy to address challenges that millions of critically ill and injured people face each year. We aim to integrate clinical, basic science, engineering, and other disciplines in a manner allowing for sharp translational focus of discovery to impact across the spectrum of critical care. By speaking and acting together as one team for the critically ill and injured there should be nothing we cannot accomplish. We are rapidly building an infrastructure to accelerate our mission to fully activate and express the innovation genotype for critical care.
Thank you again for being a part of the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care, enjoy our newsletter, and feel free to pass it on to your colleagues.
Kevin Ward & Shuichi Takayama
