SINAInnovations

Conference Description

The explosive growth in new technologies and concepts driving innovation in the biomedical sciences increasingly requires scientists to work in teams to maximize success.

"Team Science" will be the focus of this year's SINAInnovations Conference. Leaders in medicine, engineering, design, the performing arts, the military and professional sports will reveal their secrets to cultivating teamwork. These experts will highlight team-based success stories including the ENCODE Database, SAGE Bionetworks, and DARPA, and will emphasize how to enhance and reward teamwork in any sphere, including academic medical centers, as well as the biotech, medical device and pharmaceutical industries.

SINAInnovations will be held on November 18-19, 2013 at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

About SINAInnovations

This year's program, to be held November 18-19, 2013, will highlight the power of Team Science, which is a key ingredient to accelerating progress and spurring creativity as we advance our culture of innovation and discovery.

The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has embarked upon an ambitious and unprecedented effort to redefine how innovation is taught, incentivized and facilitated within an Academic Medical Center.

The SINAInnovations event is free and open all Mount Sinai trainees, faculty and staff, as well as faculty and trainees from other academic medical centers, and biomedical industry professionals.
