The 2021 National Health Research Forum, Straight Talk: Fighting Health Threats Faster took place from Monday, September 13, 2021, to Wednesday, September 15, 2021. The Forum gathered top federal officials, leadership from across our broad membership, and distinguished national media to take an unvarnished look at issues that are vital to the wellbeing of our nation, our economy, and patients in the U.S. and across the globe. In 2021, via a virtual platform, more than 90 speakers including high-ranking governmental officials joined us over three days with expert insight and Q&A opportunities for participants. Watch the recordings.


The growth of discovery and innovation depends on a strong pipeline to train and connect future generations of health and science researchers. To help drive growth and assist early career researchers, Research!America hosted “Reaching the Peak: A Science and Technology Career Summit,” an event providing professional development workshops, networking opportunities, and a science communication competition on June 30, 2021.
