We will return to Bryn Mawr for our fifth InnovationWell community of practice meeting which will take place 13 - 16 October 2009 at Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia.
We invite contributed papers from members of academic, government research and commercial organizations on areas of new research and innovation relevant to innovation and knowledge management in the life sciences. The work presented should involve innovative new method development or application in the areas of systems biology, translational medicine, knowledge management, computational biology, metabolomics, predictive ADME, predictive toxicology or bioinformatics. Studies including experimental work in medicinal chemistry, screening, novel in vitro assay development, pre-clinical evaluation, and translational medicine are welcome.
Abstracts (300-500 words) should be submitted to innovationwell -[at]- douglasconnect.com by 31 March 2009, and be accompanied by a short biography of the presenting author (300-500 words). Abstracts approved by the scientific organizing committee will be selected for scheduling on the conference program and in meeting poster sessions. Authors will be notified of acceptance as soon as a review of submitted materials takes place and at the latest by 15 April 2009.
