  • Considering establishing cross-disciplinary initiatives (i.e. collaborative
    specialization programs, catalyst grants, co-supervision, joint courses /
    programs, and co-curricular activities)
  • Identifying cross-university opportunities for natural partnerships to fill  clinical and knowledge gaps, (e.g., clinical embryology and computational medicine & biology)
  • Developing curriculum / courses for the computational medicine & biology program
  • Promoting collaborative initiatives such as the Quality Council that advance harmonization of clinical laboratory practices
  • Fostering industry partnerships
