UChicago Innovation Fest is a month-long, city-wide celebration of UChicago innovation, cutting-edge research, and entrepreneurial activities that impact people’s lives.
Last year’s inaugural #InnoFest drew more than 3,000 unique attendees to more than 42 events across campus and the city. Participants included everyone from students to alumni to faculty to the Chicagoland community. Check out some of last year’s events featuring ITM faculty by clicking here.
“UChicago Innovation Fest highlights how UChicago’s groundbreaking research is translated into real-world medical, commercial, and business applications that are improving the health of people in this city and around the world,” said Julian Solway, MD, and Susan Cohn, MD, Co-Directors of the ITM. “We welcome the entire UChicago and Chicagoland communities to attend.”
If you’d like to get involved, host an event, be a sponsor, or submit an event you already have planned for consideration, contact Sara Serritella, ITM Communications Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org before March 17, 2017.
Innovation Fest is organized by the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation; the Office of the Executive Vice President for Research, Innovation and National Laboratories; University of Chicago Institute for Translational Medicine; and the Chicago Booth Social Enterprise Initiative.
