Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases

Bridging the Gap – Overcoming Bottlenecks in the Development of Therapeutics for Infectious Diseases

August 9–10, 2012
Rockville, Maryland

The Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases at NIAID is committed to helping advance new therapeutics for infectious diseases through the product development pipeline. The three key objectives for this workshop are

  • Review the current state of the translational research enterprise from the perspective of all stakeholders
  • Enable interaction between seasoned translational researchers and investigators who are new to product development and encourage new collaborations
  • Brainstorm on innovative ways to address bottlenecks in product development and consider new ways to capitalize on existing resources

The workshop objectives will be accomplished through a series of case studies of key bottlenecks, a poster session where less experienced translational investigators can get feedback on their ideas, and interactive, meet-the-experts style break out sessions.
