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.

Research!America and Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) hosted a Research Partners Forum, “Building Ohio’s Economy and Health Through Medical Research.” Attended by 400 people, the forum focused on the importance of medical research to Ohio’s economy.
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.
