Collaboration Roundtable draws 250+ researchers
Our first event of 2010 to foster new collaborations, the Georgia Research Alliance/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/CDC Foundation Collaboration Roundtable, drew more than 250 scientists from throughout Georgia to the CDC on February 26.
Launched three years ago as part of the GRA Next-Generation Vaccines and Therapeutics Initiative, the Roundtable brings together scientists from eight Georgia universities and from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Together, they explore opportunities to collaborate in early-stage vaccine and therapeutics projects that marshal the immune system to prevent and treat diseases like influenza, cancer, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, diabetes and malaria.
In its first three years, the Roundtable has generated 40+ new collaborations.
Abstracts of the posters presented at the 2010 Roundtable are available at www.gra.org/vaccines.
