Hear it From Them

This event fits wonderfully with the ITM’s mission. We’re all about creating new opportunities to make new treatments and get them out to the community, and these are wonderful examples of four approaches to doing just that. Knowledge is power, and this is exactly the kind of power that we love to arm the community with.
Julian Solway, MD, ITM Director

How to Get Involved in 2017.

Visit the UChicago Innovation Fest Website.

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 serritella@uchicago.edu before March 17, 2017.
