On Tuesday, September 21, 2010, NIDDK will host, “Unlocking the Secrets of Science: Building the Foundation for Future Advances,” a scientific symposium to highlight research advances made possible, in part, with NIDDK support. Sessions will be chaired by three former NIDDK Directors. In addition, 12 scientists will receive the NIDDK Early Career Investigator/Scholar Award and will discuss their work during a poster session.
Since 1950, the NIDDK has conducted and supported medical research to alleviate some of the world’s most debilitating diseases. NIDDK’s symposium is just one of many special scientific symposia and other events recognizing NIDDK’s 60 Years of Advancing Research to Improve Health.
The scientific symposium is free and open to the public. Advance registration is encouraged.
