The InnovationWell 2009 community of practice meeting program with abstracts is now complete and available at http://innovationwell.com/comty_conferencesprog09
The InnovationWell program will cover discussion of topics on Collaboration in Discovery and Development, Translational Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Biomarkers, Blood-Brain Barrier Modeling and Predictive Toxicology.
More detailed program below.
This annual community of practice meeting is taking place for the fifth time and brings together a unique combination of pharmaceutical and healthcare industry experts, principal investigators and researchers from the academic and government sectors, and leaders from innovative enterprises. The smaller and more intimate meeting format pursued has fostered the type of collaboration not always found at large conferences.
Registration fees include food (lunch, dinner, breaks and evening refreshments) for the days attended. Furthermore, arrangements have been made for some affordable accommodations (preferred rates), making the meeting economical to attend. We now have a great deal of information on preferred rates and travel directions available at http://innovationwell.com/comty_conferencelocation
