On April 25, 2017, the NINR Intramural Research Program convened a scientific symposium, Symptom Science Research: A Path to Precision Health, on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland, highlighting Intramural’s scientific advances and collaborations across the National Institutes of Health and other organizations. Video of the event is now available at: https://videocast.nih.gov/summary.asp?Live=21623.
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.
Dr. Michael Gottesman, Deputy Director for Intramural Research at NIH delivered the symposium’s keynote address.
The symposium included scientific panels on:
- The Role of the Gut-Liver-Brain Axis on Inflammation, Addiction and Infection – Moderated by Dr. Wendy Henderson, Investigator, NINR
- The Role of Inflammatory and Glutamatergic Pathways on Fatigue – Moderated by Dr. Leorey Saligan, Investigator, NINR
- Identifying Biomarkers to Improve Clinical Care of Patients with Brain Injury – Moderated by Dr. Jessica Gill, Investigator, NINR
