NIH Research Festival Set for Oct. 14-17

The NIH Research Festival organizing committee, co-chaired this year by Dr. Joseph Fraumeni, director, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, NCI, and Dr. Robert Desimone, scientific director, NIMH, has announced that the 2003 NIH Research Festival will be held Oct. 14-17 on campus. The committee is now accepting submission of poster abstracts through July 15 by all NIH investigators and Bethesda FDA/CBER investigators. Posters in any area of research conducted by the NIH intramural program will be considered for presentation but the committee is requesting a limit of one poster submission per first author.

Events for this annual showcase of the NIH intramural research program will kick off with an all-day Clinical Center 50th Anniversary Symposium on Tuesday, Oct. 14, in Masur Auditorium, Bldg. 10, that will feature presentations by current and former NIH investigators on the past, present and future accomplishments of clinical research. A poster session devoted to clinical research also will take place that day. The festival moves to the Natcher Conference Center on Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 15-16, for cross-cutting mini-symposia and poster sessions, special exhibits on intramural research resources and the NIH Job Fair for postdoctoral and clinical fellows. The Technical Sales Association scientific equipment tent show will cap festival activities on Oct. 16-17.
