First NIH-CIHR Symposium

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

Cross-Border Symposium
On November 22, 2019, I participated in a joint symposium involving NIH and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). Held at NIH’s Lawton Chiles International House, this gathering of senior NIH and CIHR leadership marked the first symposium between these analogous governmental organizations. Topics included: cross-border training, international collaboration, global health, artificial intelligence, and implementation science. In this photo showing some of the meeting attendees, I’m standing next to CIHR president Michael Strong. The day-long symposium was co-hosted by NIH’s Fogarty International Center and CIHR.
