Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS), Interdisciplinary Innovation Forum site. This is a new initiative by the College to focus on the world’s biggest problems where interdisciplinary innovations will have big impact and where UAB has existing strengths and interests. These forums provide opportunities for faculty members across the UAB campus to network with each other as well as with external entities to promote innovation, transformation and excellence in our programs.
Faculty members on the organizing committee represent the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education, the School of Business, the School of Engineering, the School of Health Professions, the School of Medicine, the School of Optometry, School of Dentistry and the School of Public Health. Also, representatives from the UAB Research Foundation (UABRF) and Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA) are included in our forum.
I look forward to your participation and contributions to these forums. Please use this site as a resource for presentation information on past forums and updates on future forums. I also encourge you to fill out our online suggestion form to recommend future topics for discussion. You can also share your thoughts through your departmental/school representatives or with us personally.With kind regards,
Associate Dean Yogesh K. Vohra, Ph.D
