The NICHD Scientific Vision series held its Final Conference
Over the past six months, the NICHD has embarked on a mission to define its next decade of research goals. The identification of broad scientific themes, development of vision workshops, and establishment of highly discussed white papers all came together at the final conference, "NICHD: Bringing the Vision Together," on June 23 and 24, 2011. The conference was live-streamed for all to view, and an archived copy can be found at http://videocast.nih.gov.
