September 2016 Joint Institute Newsletter

This edition of the newsletter previews the Sixth Annual JI Symposium, which is being hosted at the University of Michigan for the third time. Inside, find the schedule and confirmed speakers and panel information. Also find information about the newest JI research proposals to receive funding: eight projects that are sure to advance science and health in both China and the US. We’ll also examine a new PUHSC/U-M collaboration being funded by a prestigious Fulbright Distinguished Chair award – a project rooted in a meeting at the 2014 JI Symposium.

JI partnerships aren’t just about faculty; students and physicians-in-training benefit, too. Read about a U-M resident’s influential rotation with PUHSC, as well as several medical students who are now published authors after working in China under JI mentors.

Indeed, we have much to celebrate. Our institutional relationship continues to thrive to the benefit of our colleagues and students, to say nothing of the many future discoveries that will no doubt improve healthcare for people everywhere. Please enjoy this issue and we look forward to seeing many of you at this year’s JI Symposium. Read the September 2016 Newsletter here.
