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).

Monday, April 24, 2017 to Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Natcher Conference Center (Bldg. 45)

Join us for the NCI RNA Biology 2017 Symposium. Organized by the CCR Initiative in RNA Biology, this symposium will bring together internationally renowned experts in the field of RNA Biology, with the focus on RNA processing, RNA structure and mechanism, non-classical RNAs, and RNA therapy.

RNA biology has emerged as one of the most influential areas in modern biology and biomedicine. The discovery of numerous new classes of RNAs and their function in a wide spectrum of biological processes has revolutionized molecular biology and has profound implications for clinical sciences. Key areas of current research include the elucidation of RNA biogenesis and structure, the identification of functions for various classes of RNAs, establishing the role of RNA in disease, and the exploration of RNA-based- and RNA-targeted therapies. Registration for RNA Biology 2017 is free but seating is limited, so please register online. For additional information please contact Julia Lam at

Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 8:00 am to 2:30 pm

Masur Auditorium, NIH Clinical Center (Bldg. 10)

The NINR Intramural Research Program will host a scientific symposium, "Symptom Science Research: A Path to Precision Health", highlighting NINR Intramural’s scientific advances and collaborations across the National Institutes of Health and other organizations. The NINR Intramural Research Program is dedicated to conducting basic and clinical research on the biological, genetic, and behavioral mechanisms underlying symptoms of chronic conditions. The ultimate scientific goal is to enhance patient outcomes for individuals with conditions such as digestive disorders, cancer-related fatigue, and traumatic brain injury.  The symposium will include scientific panels on: The Role of the Gut-Liver-Brain Axis on Inflammation, Addiction and Infection; The Role of Inflammatory and Glutamatergic Pathways on Fatigue; and Identifying Biomarkers to Improve Clinical Care of Patients with Brain Injury. The symposium is open to the public, but registration is required.

Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Wilson Hall, Bldg. 1

The NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) invites you to attend the 10th Matilda White Riley Behavioral and Social Sciences Honors. Each year, OBSSR honors the continuing influence of Dr. Matilda White Riley in the behavioral and social sciences across and beyond the NIH. OBSSR recently turned the celebration into the Real Life, Labs, Research.

Please be sure to register for this exciting event that will recognize the winners of OBSSR’s Early Stage Investigators (ESI) Paper Competition, who will present their research during the ESI Honors panel discussion, and will feature a lecture by a distinguished scholar whose research has contributed to behavioral and social scientific knowledge and/or the application of such knowledge that is relevant to the mission of the NIH. 

Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Lipsett Amphitheater, NIH Clinical Center (Bldg. 10)

Please join us for Clinical Center Grand Rounds. Maximilian Muenke, M.D. and Philip Shaw, M.D., Ph.D. will present "Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: From Causes to Treatment".

This lecture will be available live and archived online on NIH Videocast. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit will be offered for this lecture and the activity code will be distributed/announced at the lecture.                   

Reasonable Accommodations: Sign language interpreters will be provided. Individuals with disabilities who need reasonable accommodation to participate in this event should contact Clinical Center Communications at 301-496-2563.
