The Weill Cornell Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) has entered a video competition to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the NIH Common Fund, and we need your help to win!
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Common Fund supports programs that cut between two or more NIH Institutes or Centers in order to catalyze collaboration and innovation. The NIH Common Fund originated the Clinical and Translational Science Award program, which supports the CTSC at Weill Cornell and similar programs across the country.
In this fun, 90-second video, Clinical and Translational Education Program (CTEP) team member Tim Baker performs a rap about the CTSC. The piece captures the amazing spirit and energy of the work we are doing and expresses our gratitude to the Common Fund for its support.
Some general information about the competition:
- The winning videos will be the 4–5 videos that receive the most “Likes” on YouTube.
- The NIH expects to count “Likes” until May 9, 2014, to determine the winners. This is subject to change.
- Winners will receive a signed certificate from Dr. Francis Collins, NIH Director, and will see their video shown during the Common Fund 10-Year Commemoration Symposium on June 19th via live videocast.
