The North Campus Research Complex (NCRC) welcomed a new denizen, the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Clinical Care (M-CIRCC).
The new center will serve as a means to link physicians, scientists, and engineers that otherwise work in different UM units and already has over 50 faculty signed up.
“It’s hard to overstate the key role of engineering in addressing the needs of critical care clinicians, and the engineering challenges that only research can overcome,” says Alec Gallimore, Ph.D., associate dean for research and graduate education at the U-M College of Engineering and Thurnau Professor, U of M Health News reports.
MCIRCC is just one more way UM is spurring and shortening the bench to bedside transition, and to highlight why such collaborations are paving the way for the future, read about what physicians and engineers were able to do for 20 month old Kaiba.
