ITM Directors Julian Solway, MD, Lainie Ross, MD, PhD, and Joshua Jacobs, MD, helped launch the monthly series by sharing the latest ITM resources and opportunities, fueled by millions of dollars from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program. ITM Grand Rounds will highlight new resources and discoveries throughout the year and provide an in-person venue for people to connect and collaborate over food and refreshments.
“It was wonderful to gather with our colleagues in this way for the first time in more than two years,” Solway said. “This is where spontaneous connections and ideas are sparked, creating a special place for people to harness ITM resources and do things that might not otherwise be possible.”
Jacobs closed out the evening by showcasing ways the ITM helps researchers improve public health and deliver health information to the public, through opportunities like the ITM Pilot Awards, the KL2 Program, and The New Normal™ Campaign.
