Research Partners Forums

Research Partners Forums are open dialogues among leaders in academia, business, government, non-profits and the public on subjects related to improving health through research.

In conjunction with Pfizer and university partners, Research!America held two forums that brought together journalists and scientists to help understand how to communicate with each other more effectively. The first forum involved the University of Maryland, with an event held in downtown Washington, DC. Academic leaders from the communications, journalism and medical science departments of Maryland joined journalists from The New York Times, TIME Magazine and Nature Medicine for a pair of panels that helped bridge the gap between the disciplines.
