Catalyze Innovation that Advances Health

Case Studies

The efforts highlighted here provide examples of MI2’s innovation work in recent years. They are categorized both by the MI2 team that led them, as well as their implementation phase (with the most recent project in each phase, left to right):

  • Active projects are those currently in development or in practice.

  • Concluded projects were time-bound, such as events or research grant projects, yet aspects of the work or the results it inspired may continue (e.g., technology tool, other training efforts).

  • Reinvented projects provided foundational insights, infrastructure, etc., which were then further adapted and scaled to leverage lessons learned.
