Mini Grant Innovation Program

Our 2020 awardees were teams led by Dr. Juan Fernandez-Miranda and Diana Anthony; Dr. Sakti Srivastava and Matt Hasel; and Dr. James Lau, Adam Hain, and Meenu Singh. Dr. Fernandez-Miranda’s project extends immersive virtual reality into medical education. Dr. Srivastava seeks to build an affordable VR anatomy learning system. And Dr. Lau’s project supports applying design thinking to curriculum development in undergraduate medical education.

Our 2018 awardees were teams led by Drs. Sharon Chen and Henry Curtis. Dr. Chen’s project built a cloud-based simulation platform that offers a new way to evaluate student learning of antimicrobials. Meanwhile, Dr. Curtis’s virtual reality project explores new strategies for medical education.
