myCHOICE Seminar: What is Translational Medicine?
Feb 27 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

You’ve heard the term. But what does it really mean? Who’s already doing it? And what’s out there to help you reach your professional goals? Learn that and more from the experts at the University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine, and hear from a researcher who used his experiences there to launch his career and apply his findings to help local communities.

Julian Solway, MD, ITM Co-Director

Julian Solway, MD, is the Principal Investigator (PI) of the NIH grant that operates the ITM.

Solway launched the ITM in 2007, and under his leadership it has grown to include UChicago, Rush University Medical Center, NorthShore University HealthSystem, the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Loyola University Medical System, and Advocate Health.

Solway, the UChicago Medicine & BSD Dean for Translational Medicine and Walter L. Palmer Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics, is also an authority on asthma and has a robust research program that has been funded by the NIH and other organizations for more than 28 years.

Gerald Moose Stacy, ITM Administrative Director

Gerald Moose Stacy is the Administrative Director of the ITM, where he executes its projects and manages its staff.

Prior to joining the ITM, he managed the third largest Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) in the country at Johns Hopkins University’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR). Gerry helped build the ICTR into a $17 million per year grant in less than a decade, and what started out as a team of three evolved into a staff of nearly 30 and a community of more than 300 faculty members who received salary support.

Sara Serritella, ITM Communications Director

Sara Serritella is the Communications Director of the ITM, where she orchestrates its marketing and strategic storytelling across its communications platforms and trains researchers on how to best communicate their science.
Serritella is an award-winning journalist who has reported at news organizations across the country, covering everything from health care to federal courts, and she was among the pioneers of multimedia reporting on those beats. Serritella is an alumna of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, Media and Integrated Marketing Communications.

DEADLINE: Catalyst Award Applications

ITM’s partner the Chicago Biomedical Consortium’s (CBC) Catalyst Award program offers funding of up to $250,000 for one- or two-year new inter-institutional collaborative research projects in the broad area of Systems Biology. Projects should address important areas of biological/biomedical research that are risky, innovative, and potentially transformative. The Catalyst Award is not to support on-going research that could be funded by traditional extramural granting mechanisms. Catalysts are not intended to support incremental progress, obvious next steps, or NIH ready projects. The spirit of this program is to catalyze new creative, innovative, and transformative research projects.  Preliminary data are not required. Collaborations involving junior faculty members are given special consideration. Research teams must be composed of Principal Investigators (PIs) from at least two CBC Institutions (UChicago, NU, and UIC).
