Research!America's 2010 National Forum

For those in the DC area, this a great opportunity to hear about policy.

Research!America's 2010 National Forum will be the seventh annual discussion among nationally recognized leaders in health research - a "who's who" of government, academia, industry, media and patient advocacy.

Two discussions will be followed by question-and-answer sessions. Conversation will focus on the fundamental role of research in the U.S. economy and the American way of life. As the country continues to emerge from the economic recession and our leaders prioritize limited resources, participants will examine topics important to the future of research in our country. The Atlantic's Michael Kinsley and PBS NewsHour's Judy Woodruff will moderate. Confirmed panelists include:

Federal agency heads:

* Carolyn M. Clancy, MD, director, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
* Francis S. Collins, MD, PhD, director, National Institutes of Health
* Thomas R. Frieden, MD, MPH, director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
* Margaret Hamburg, MD, commissioner, Food and Drug Administration


* Margaret Anderson, executive director, FasterCures
* Paul Chew, MD, chief science & medical officer, sanofi-aventis U.S.
* Jennifer Howse, PhD, president, March of Dimes Foundation
* Barbara Kunz, president, Health and Life Sciences Global Business, Battelle Memorial Institute
* Robert Tjian, PhD, president, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
* Jack T. Watters, MD, vice president of external medical affairs, Pfizer Inc

Join us Tuesday, March 16, 2010 from noon to 3 p.m. at the National Press Club. Admission is complimentary for Research!America members, and $25 for others.* RSVP today!
