The IRM is excited to present our Jan 2020 – Feb 2021 Year in Review! Given the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to pause and reflect on the positives that made a difficult year worthwhile. This short report covers all the events, outreach, and exciting new research directions launched recently and looks ahead toward the IRM’s next chapter.


  • Information about our donor-backed grantmaking
  • Updates on our outreach and education programs
  • Recaps of our (often virtual) events and workshops
  • A preview of the months ahead

As always, we are grateful to the faculty, students, staff, and donors that support the IRM. More than ever, it is our people that make the Institute a special place for science.
