CIMIT Program Leaders

Program Leaders form the clinical nucleus of the CIMIT community.  They are visionaries, subject matter experts, accomplished innovators, mentors and compassionate clinicians.  An authority on a given medical specialty, a Program Leader serves as head coach for the teams of investigators within each program area, imparting advice and offering encouragement as the researchers explore the science for which they have received a CIMIT grant.

Program Leaders also recruit new researchers into the CIMIT community.  Years of personal experience make it easy for these talented physicians to spot the potential of a young clinician who has what it takes to become a successful innovator.  Each actively cultivates the next generation by helping form multidisciplinary collaborations, providing expert guidance on overcoming the barriers to innovation, and when necessary, offering access to a national network.
