Hail to the Cube: Michigan's Legacy of Uncommon Innovation​

Location: Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.), Rackham Auditorium

Get ready to participate in this dynamic showcase of research and scholarship at the University of Michigan, from snake robots and the human microbiome to big data and public art. More than 250 interdisciplinary faculty and student teams, or “cubes,” will present their work through storytelling, demonstrations, and posters. 
We’ll launch the event with a timely keynote address from Dr. Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health. Formerly a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator at the University of Michigan, Dr. Collins is a physician-geneticist noted for his landmark discoveries of disease genes and his leadership of the international Human Genome Project. Don’t miss his thoughts about the most strategic approaches to today’s research environment!
Learn something new. Access the professional network of a lifetime. And hail the next chapter in Michigan’s legacy of uncommon innovation.
