Meet UNeMed Staff – Charlie Litton


by Agnes Lenagh, UNeMed

For UNeMed, Innovation Week provides an opportunity to expose the UNMC research community to technology transfer. UNeMed needs to demonstrate that anyone can be an inventor and offer ideas to improve health.

With Innovation Week just around the corner, we sat with UNeMed staffers and chatted about Innovation Week.

“Anyone, whether they’re a med student or a part of the support staff, can have a great idea.” – Litton

Q: What does Innovation Week mean to you?
A: It’s well deserved recognition of the amazing research we see at UNMC.

Q: What one thing does everyone need to know about Innovation Week?
A: That Innovation doesn’t need to come from the best-funded, most respected researcher. Anyone, whether they’re a med student or a part of the support staff, can have a great idea.

Q: What do you hope the UNMC community will gain from attending Innovation Week?
A: Inspiration.

Q: How has innovation grown on campus?
A: My head is still spinning just getting up to speed on all the innovation from the last six months. Ask me again next year.

Q: How do you define innovation?
A: Saying to yourself: There must be a better way. And then finding it.

Q: Which Innovation Week event are you looking forward to most? Why?
A: Demonstration Day. This is the first year we’re putting this event on, but I think this has the potential to be a fantastic addition to the regular list of Innovation Week events. It gives the community a wonderful chance to see in practical terms the kind of things their university is developing and how they’re making the world a better place. It will be interesting to see how well it is received.

Join us next time when we sit down with another UNeMed staff member.
