The University of Missouri System will host a Life Sciences Summit in Kansas City, Missouri, March 8-9, 2010, on the University of Missouri-Kansas City campus, at the Stowers Institute and at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center.
Collaborations among educational, business and governmental sectors are key to successful scientific and economic progress for the future. Our collective efforts are moving us toward a new frontier of knowledge generation and application so that we are now poised for exploration of an even more promising future. At this Life Sciences Summit, we will celebrate our past successes while identifying the critical set of research and development collaborations to further drive these endeavors.
Successful partnering will create an engine for human-health improvement and related product development, building on our basic science (pre-clinical) expertise. Our goals are to both celebrate and advance our collaborative strengths within the life sciences across Missouri, Kansas and throughout the region and to capitalize on our comparative medicine strengths in order to further enhance the internationally recognized Animal Health Corridor.
We are soliciting abstracts for posters at the Summit in two key areas — those which highlight current successful partnerships, and posters that highlight promising areas for establishment of new collaborations. Here are some examples:
The summit seeks to provide a creative environment for real consideration of new ways of working together — so no need to be limited by the poster examples listed above. Summit organizers will be happy to consider any abstract designed to promote and generate interest in new collaborations, richer research results and strengthening our economy.
The deadline for abstract submission has passed. Selected posters will be notified via e-mail.
