NIAMS Hosts Fellows for Symposium
NIAMS recently hosted a symposium in conjunction with the American College of Rheumatology-European League Against Rheumatism Exchange Program. The program promotes the international exchange of clinical and research skills, expertise and knowledge within rheumatology. It recognizes outstanding health professionals in both laboratory- and clinic-based research and provides exposure to the work being done by colleagues overseas.
The all-day event, organized by NIAMS clinical director and program host Dr. Richard Siegel , featured research presentations from exchange fellows as well as NIAMS faculty and Scholars in Translational Research. The meeting also offered networking opportunities for NIH staff and exchange program participants. Keynote sessions by Dr. Daniel Kastner, NHGRI scientific director, and Dr. Constantino Pitzalis, program host at Queen Mary University of London, highlighted the day.
