MedStar-Georgetown Scientific Advisory Board

In September 2012, scientific leaders from Georgetown and MedStar held an off-site investigators’ retreat to explore how to increase cross-campus clinical research collaborations.  Part of the solutions included reducing barriers for investigators and providing additional support.  A list (a long list!) of ideas were generated with a responsible person and timeline.  The group also decided to continue working together as the newly formed GU-MedStar Scientific Advisory Board and meet quarterly.  This afternoon, we met at MedStar NRH where we had updates on the list including: PARTNER grant results and next round, new clinical data sharing, new clinical trial master agreement, development of a searchable repository of data about all investigators across both organizations and more.  We also talked about new ways to facilitate collaboration with interactive web-based sessions.  Lots of things accomplished, lots more to do, lots of energy and clear momentum forward! 

I am deeply appreciative to all the participants - including the cynical Dr. Umans sitting in the back corner who admitted, he even reads this blog!
