The National Institutes of Health (NIH) campuses host a variety of events that inform, challenge, and unite the biomedical research community. IRP investigators lead or participate in many of these events, and they regularly present their work at scientific conferences at the NIH and around the world. We invite you to learn about (and possibly join us in) some of our upcoming events. Unless otherwise noted, times listed are Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Thursday, October 20, 2016 to Friday, October 21, 2016

Porter Neuroscience Research Center (Bldg 35A)

The NIMH is pleased to announce their upcoming 1 1/2-day symposium highlighting 60 years of advances in our understanding of the neurobiology of memory, perception, and action. Speakers will share insights from studies of nonhuman primates, humans, and rats, using lesions, electrophysiology, imaging, and related techniques. In focusing on how these studies have brought us to our current understanding, speakers will show how such research continually raises new questions and opens new avenues in the field of cognitive neuroscience. For more information, refer to

Natcher Conference Center (Building 45)

Day 1: 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Day 2: 9:00 AM  – 11:40 AM

This conference is the first of its kind to focus on vascular-inflammation emerging research as it relates to immunology, systemic inflammation, and multimodal imaging. The event will bring together the world’s most renowned experts the field, providing a forum for international collaboration across disciplines to speed new discoveries, fill gaps in existing knowledge, and potentially lead to critical breakthroughs in ways to understand vascular inflammation as it relates to future cardiovascular disease events. Fast-paced presentations and discussions will facilitate the exchange of ideas on critical topics, including translational studies involving cardiovascular imagery and quantification and the immunology of inflammation. A poster session will enable the evaluation and discussion of additional unpublished research and guidance to early-career researchers.
