From Mission to Action

IMERI’s goal is to deliver innovation, even disruptive innovation in medical education and medical sciences. To produce innovative science, truly new knowledge, talented and intrinsically motivated researchers are needed that are given the opportunity (time, space, tools, collaborators and monies) to systematically pursue their scientific goals.

We have now arrived at a time where a wide array of scientist from many disciplines (doctors, mathematicians, engineers, geneticists, behavioral scientist and others) are coming together to form multidisciplinary teams of researchers that can better address the complex medical and health problems of this time. The truly multidisciplinary approach to important medical and health problems in society is considered to be the third revolution in biomedical science, and has been labeled Convergence.

IMERI would provide ample ‘community-catalyzing spaces’ for scientist and support convergent research collaborations with flexible platform for convergence in research to be instigated and nurtured. IMERI prioritize convergent research in biomedical sciences, i.e. have a series thematic, problem- based approaches addressing complex issues in Health and Disease that are highly relevant to Indonesian society and beyond, by the formation of truly multidisciplinary groups of scientists, probably including scientists from outside FKUI, from outside UI and even from outside Indonesia. Talented young scientist will converge in IMERI, and become mature scientist under inspiring leadership.
