For future reference or if you weren’t able to attend the Brown Bag Lunch yesterday, here are the slides presented by IMCI Director Holly Wichman regarding our Pilot Grant program. Please remember, you are welcome to reach out to the leadership team directly and at any time if you have questions about whether your research fits within the goals and objectives of IMCI.
Nearly 60 scientists from across campus came together to brainstorm possible interdisciplinary research topics on January 30 and February 6. We were excited by the lively discussion and thrilled that 12 different small groups formed.
If you are interested in joining any of the following research groups, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the group lead.
You can also join the discussions via Slack.

All IMCI and IBEST participants, including faculty, postdocs, students and staff, are invited to participate in an extraordinary brainstorming session on January 30 and again on February 6 in the Clearwater room at the ISUB.
The idea is that rather than assemble research teams in response to specific funding opportunities, researchers grow teams with common research goals and then search out appropriate funding sources.
Bring your own lunch and big ideas. Cookies and coffee will be provided.
A new look, or graphic treatment, is part of our transition from a center (CMCI) to an institute (IMCI).
In October, Creative Services attended a Brown Bag Lunch to talk about the U of I brand. They also collected input and ideas from participants for an IMCI graphic.
All of it is so that we can communicate effectively and consistently. View the pdf version of Creative Services’ presentation.
