NINR To Hold Symptom Science Research Symposium
On Apr. 25, the National Institute of Nursing Research will convene a scientific symposium—Symptom Science Research: A Path to Precision Health—highlighting the NINR Intramural Research Program’s scientific advances and collaborations across NIH and other organizations. The symposium will take place in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10, from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The NINR Intramural Research Program is dedicated to conducting basic and clinical research on the biological, genetic and behavioral mechanisms underlying symptoms of chronic conditions. The ultimate scientific goal is to enhance patient outcomes for individuals with conditions such as digestive disorders, cancer-related fatigue and traumatic brain injury.
The symposium will include scientific panels on: The Role of the Gut-Liver-Brain Axis on Inflammation, Addiction and Infection; The Role of Inflammatory and Glutamatergic Pathways on Fatigue; and Identifying Biomarkers to Improve Clinical Care of Patients with Brain Injury.
There will also be a poster session to highlight research conducted by NINR intramural fellows and trainees along with collaborating scientists from the NIH community and other Institutions.
