As the year comes to a close, the MIME executive team members have spent some time reflecting on MIME's first year of operation. 2015 was both a busy and productive year for MIME. We focused strongly on building collaborative partnerships between our researchers and clinicians and the success of the 2015 MIME Seed Fund is a clear reflection of the relationships formed. We facilitated many industry meetings and worked on a variety of projects with all of you. We would like to thank all of our researchers and clinicians for their strong support, energy and enthusiasm for MIME and our initiatives. We wish you all a happy and safe holiday season and look forward to an exciting, challenging and rewarding 2016.
