In the spring, NextGen Precision Health is launching a symposium connecting interdisciplinary researchers from across the University of Missouri System. You are invited to attend and submit abstracts for poster presentations. The focus of the symposium is new interventions that benefit health. The symposium will be Friday, March 22, in Columbia, Missouri.
NextGen Precision Health aims to build up a tempo of events like this one to stimulate collaborations and to be inclusive of all types of expertise. In the U.S., it takes an average of 14 years for a new treatment to make it from the discovery phase to a patient in the clinic. NextGen Precision Health looks to shorten that time frame considerably if all parts of the translational pipeline are engaged at the beginning, including scientists, data and materials engineers, pre-clinical model experts, legal and regulatory experts, industry partners, pharmacologists, diet and metabolism experts, social and behavioral experts, clinicians and many others.
