NIH Hosts First Industry Day

NIH is hosting the first annual Industry Day, a one-day virtual conference designed to encourage greater public-private collaboration, on Jan. 18 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

The conference will feature speakers from across NIH including NIH Director Dr. Monica Bertagnolli, Deputy Director for Intramural Research Dr. Nina Schor and Deputy Chief of the National Cancer Institute Lab of Cellular Oncology Dr. John Schiller. 

While many companies have partnered successfully with NIH, many others may not appreciate the many benefits that an NIH collaboration can provide or understand how to work with NIH. Because of its complex structure, the diversity of its research as well as the many federal rules and regulations that must be followed, NIH can be difficult to navigate. 

The event will focus on six subject areas: vaccines, therapeutics (including gene therapy), novel target identification/validation, drug repurposing, diagnostics and biomarkers.
