The NIBIB Division of Interdisciplinary Training, led by Zeynep Erim, Ph.D., hosted 208 attendees from across the country at the NIH Bethesda campus for a two-day meeting in June. The participants included 135 trainees supported by NIBIB’s institutional and individual training programs and intramural research programs, along with 63 principal investigators and administrators of NIBIB’s 44 institutional training programs. The gathering included an opportunity for trainees to present their research and for the NIH team to offer an array of sessions on professional development, including grantsmanship and entrepreneurship, and opportunities for exposure to NIH resources at hand. NIBIB Director Bruce Tromberg, Ph.D., and NIBIB's BETA Center Director Manu Platt, Ph.D., welcomed attendees and Kaitlyn Sadtler, Ph.D. discussed her work in harnessing the immune system in regenerative medicine on day-one; Marie Bernard, M.D., Chief of the NIH Office for Scientific Workforce Diversity, presented a vision for optimizing scientific creativity and innovation in the 21st century as a highlight of day-two. The NIBIB team, which includes Program Directors Tina Gatlin, Ph.D., and David Gutekunst, Ph.D., and Scientific Program Analyst Khalil Chugtai also arranged for tours of several NIBIB labs and the NIH Clinical Center to round out the wide-ranging agenda.
