Calling all women in the science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) fields! Want to commercialize your work, but don’t know where to start? Join your colleagues from diverse scientific backgrounds at the Insight to Innovation Conference this fall to learn from those who’ve done it and build the skills to be successful.

The free Oct. 27 conference is brought to you by the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). It’s supported by the ITM, and we encourage our women in STEM to apply!

About the Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM) 

The Institute for Translational Medicine (ITM), a partnership between the University of Chicago and Rush in collaboration with several health and research institutions, helps make scientific discoveries possible and speeds up the time it takes to convert that research into real-world applications that improve people’s health.  

The ITM works with more than 60 institutions across the country as part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) consortium to advance medicine in innovative ways. 

During the last 10 years, the ITM has connected more than 2,000 researchers and community organizations with funding, training, and other resources while forging connections across departments, universities, and patient advocacy groups. The ITM includes four key affiliates, Advocate Health Care, the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), Loyola University of Chicago, and NorthShore University HealthSystem. Since its 2007 inception, total funding for the ITM has exceeded $60 million through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) and through the University of Chicago Medicine and Biological Sciences.
