Do you appreciate revolutionary ideas? Then the 2014 MCubed Symposium is for you!

Register NOW for the MCubed Symposium, which last year’s participants described as an "innovation accelerator in and of itself."

Be inspired by a keynote from President Mark Schlissel, who will share his vision for research and scholarship at the University of Michigan.  Enjoy fascinating TED-like talks from faculty and students on autism, the health impacts of global trade, Facebook, environmental justice in Detroit, and more.  Session presenters will include topics like informatics, cancer therapies, and water and environment.  Meet faculty, students and postdocs who worked on MCubed projects at a massive poster session.  Get ready to be energized by updates from over 200 cubes!

Learn more about MCubed, a real-time seed funding program that empowers multi-unit faculty teams to advance immediately with novel ideas.  MCubed is proudly based in the University of Michigan Office of Research (UMOR) and is part of the Third Century Initiative, launched by the offices of the President and Provost.
