Memphis Institute of Regenerative Medicine (MIRM) 2019 Proposal

The Memphis Institute of Regenerative Medicine (MIRM) has brought together the expertise of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC), the University of Memphis (UofM), St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and industry leaders (Revotek and Medtronic) to perform basic, clinical, and translational research in the areas of stem cell biology, 3D bio-printing, and tissue engineering. The goal is to translate scientific discoveries into new organ repair and replacement therapies for people suffering from organ damage.  This proposal to the State of Tennessee describes the participants and projects of MIRM, as well as the economic impact and workforce development potential.

Operational Strategic Plan for Research

UTHSC is the leading State institution for research on the causes, treatment, and prevention of diseases. Our research mission is linked with a mandate to train health care professionals and to provide state-of-the-art clinical care across the State. We strive to do better and aim to be competitive at the highest levels. This 2016 Operational Strategic Plan for Research lays out a pragmatic and ambitious course of action that will systematically strengthen and grow research at UTHSC, and that will harmonize our work with our partner institutions over the next five years.

Allocation of Research Space Plan

Meeting the current and future needs of the University's biomedical research program requires optimal usage of research space (a valuable and limited resource) throughout UTHSC. To accomplish this requires an open and transparent process that guides the assignment and usage of space.

Investigator Award Credit Allocation Policy

Approved by the UTHSC Research Council on January 4, 2017, this policy affects annual internal reporting of Grant Awards by College and, therefore, space allocation. It is designed to apportion credit for external research grant activity to both the principal investigator(s) (PI[s]) and the co-Investigator(s) (CoI[s]) based on their relative contributions to the project, as specified by the investigators.
