2019 NINDS Nonprofit Forum Agenda

2019 NINDS Nonprofit Forum Agenda

The NIH National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) invites members of nonprofit organizations to the Institute's 2019 Nonprofit Forum. The Progress through Partnership Forum provides an opportunity for nonprofit leaders to network with colleagues and to engage in discussions with NINDS staff.

The agenda will feature panel discussions on cell and gene therapy, data collection and storage, motivating the next generation of researchers, neuroethical issues, and success stories. The meeting will also offer participants a casual setting for a discussion with NINDS program directors.

A videocast of the Forum will be available: http://videocast.nih.gov.


The 2019 NINDS Nonprofit Forum starts at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, and concludes at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22. The Forum will take place at the Neuroscience Center located at 6001 Executive Blvd. Bethesda, MD.
