Opportunity Fund Presentations

New for spring 2022

April 6, 2022

The strategic combination of Atrium Health and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center presents a unique opportunity to invest in our research mission.  One method for doing so is the creation of an Opportunity Fund that will support the recruitment of faculty to enhance the scientific capabilities of our Enterprise and propel us to become national leaders in these areas of study.  The Opportunity Fund was created to give colleagues from across the Enterprise the chance to propose new faculty recruitments that are in line with our research strategic plan and focus on improving our ability to translate findings into care.

In December 2021, we received 27 Letters of Intent for the Opportunity Fund.  After a careful review, we invited 12 to submit full applications, and we received 11 written applications.  The 11 applicants will present their proposals to a review panel of esteemed colleagues over two sessions—April 8, 2022, from 1PM to 2:30PM and April 22, 2022, from 11AM to 1PM.  We invite you, as our research community, to attend these virtual sessions and learn more about the exciting ideas brought forth by the applicants.
