In 2018 we are launching the Translational Institute of Medicine (TIME) at Queen’s, beginning in the Department of Medicine. Like all good ideas TIME was born from a conversation over coffee. Stephen Vanner and I were trying to figure out how to grow the research pie, train more researchers and ensure that all faculty had access to research resources, which sometimes are hidden in plain sight. This blog will be your introduction to TIME. Although we have been hard at work on building TIME for almost 2 years, formal approval for several key components is pending, so consider this a preview.
