An exciting journey here at UCI that has been in the works for the past 2 years has been a vision to connect trans-disciplinary teams to work on developing the future of human health. On July 11th, 2017, we had our first internal launch of this freshly minted Institute. A big thanks to Dr. Howard Federoff and Dr. Ramesh Jain for really spearheading these efforts to make a vision into reality. I would also like to lend gratitude for my advisors Dr. Jim Hicks and Dr. Ramesh Jain (L to R below) for the support behind my ideas to build a collaborative environment along the way.
Check out the developing story below.
