In April 2016, MIME will be facilitating two Affinity Meetings which have been scheduled to coincide with Phase 1 of the MIME seed funding process, - i.e. the Call to Clinicians to nominate areas of significant unmet clinical need that could potentially be addressed by engineering or IT innovation.
Clinician researchers from the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences are invited to give a 5 minute presentation outlining a clinical need or opportunity they are willing to champion. Please advise firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the appropriate registration form below if you wish to present. Engineering, IT & other researchers seeking a clinical collaborator are also invited to give a 5 minute presentation on aspects of their research that could make a significant difference to clinical diagnostics, treatment or care.
Engineering, IT and other MIME researchers are strongly encouraged to attend these events, to identify new opportunities to apply your expertise, and meet potential clinical collaborators. Networking time will be available. Researchers attending these events should then be well positioned to respond to Phase 2 of the MIME seed fund process - the call for Engineering or IT-enabled R&D programs addressing unmet clinical needs.
Researchers wishing to attend the Affinity Meetings should complete the online form below. MIME will provide transport between the Clayton site and the Affinity meetings.
Researchers from MIME partner organisations i.e. CSIRO, Hudson Institute and BakerIDI are also welcome to attend the MIME Affinity meetings.
The second meeting is scheduled for Thursday, 28 April at the Alfred from 9.00am - 11.00am, If you would like to attend or present at this meeting please complete the registration form by Thursday, 21 April.
Applications for clinicians to submit unmet clinical needs for the 2016 MIME Seed Fund round will open on Friday, 8 April. Applications should be submitted through the link on our website under the MIME Seed Funding tab. Up to $50,000 per project may be requested.
