This is a light issue as we wrap up the fiscal year. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful staff at NICHD who support NCMRR, without whose assistance we would not be able to advance our mission. Here are a few event reminders:
- The Medical Rehabilitation Research Resource (MR3) Network is hosting their second annual scientific retreat, Rehabilitation Clinical Trials: Innovations, Designs, and Tribulations, on September 29–30, 2022, via Zoom. For more information and to register, please visit the retreat website .
- NICHD is turning 60! Please join us for a virtual scientific symposium on October 17. NCMRR grantee Michelle Johnson from the University of Pennsylvania will be speaking, and I’ll have the privilege of hosting a Zoom-based fireside chat with disability advocate and pioneer Judy Heumann. Visit the symposium website to register and check out the agenda. We look forward to celebrating with you!
- The Rehabilitation Medicine Scientist Training Program (RMSTP) is recruiting! Operated in collaboration with the Association of Academic Physiatrists, RMSTP is open to early career physicians of all specialties planning research programs focused on human function, disability, and rehabilitation. The deadline for applications is October 1, 2022.
