Transgenic and Chimeric Neuroscience Research: Exploring the Scientific Opportunities Afforded by New Nonhuman Primate Models — A Workshop
Date: October 4, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)
The Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders proposes to host a public workshop bringing together key stakeholders to advance the discussions that emerged from the three National Institutes of Health meetings scheduled in June and July 2017 to address the opioid epidemic, and examine potential implementation barriers and opportunities related to the proposed approaches discussed.
Exploring Sources of Variability Related to the Clinical Translation of Regenerative Engineering Products - A Workshop
Date: October 18, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)
Regenerative engineered therapies rely on live cells and/or biologically active scaffolds, thereby creating inherent challenges associated with variability and consistency in source and final products. Each patient, donor, and product application is unique, and therefore, the field faces complexities in the development of new products and therapies that are safe and effective that are not faced by developers of more conventional therapies. To further explore the various factors that contribute to successful regenerative engineering products, the Forum on Regenerative Medicine will hold a one-day workshop in Washington, DC on October 18, 2018. The workshop may discuss factors and sources of variability in the development and clinical application of regenerative engineering products, characteristics of high-quality products, and how different clinical needs, models, and contexts can inform the development of a product. A broad array of stakeholders may take part in the workshop, including academic and industry experts, regulators, clinicians, patients, and patient advocates.
Improving Cancer Diagnosis and Care: The Clinical Application of Computational Methods in Precision Oncology: A Workshop
Date: October 29, 2018 - October 30, 2018 (8:00 AM Eastern)
The workshop will be held on October 29 – 30, 2018 to examine the clinical use of high-dimensional omics data and computational methods in precision oncology research and clinical care.
Virtual Clinical Trials: Challenges and Opportunities - A Workshop
Date: November 28, 2018 - November 29, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)
The Role of Nonpharmacological Approaches to Pain Management: A Workshop
Date: December 4, 2018 - December 5, 2018 (8:30 AM Eastern)
Given the changing landscape for pain management, the Forum on Neuroscience and Nervous System Disorders and the Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education will bring together key stakeholders to discuss these treatments and integrative health models for pain management.
