NIH Forum on Collaboration

I’m hoping the snow we are having today doesn’t prevent me from traveling early tomorrow morning.   I’m scheduled to fly to DC for a day in the office, and then out to Bethesda for a forum at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on Wednesday and Thursday.  The forum is entitled “Promoting Efficient and Effective Collaborations among Academia, Government and Industry.”   NIH director Francis Collins will be opening the forum, and then there will be several panels and breakout sessions.  I’m particularly interested in a breakout session on biomarkers and diagnostic tests for diseases including cancer.  I’m also looking forward to the posters showing good examples of collaborations.

If I make it there, I’ll let you know what I find out!
