RCTR Newsletter: Collaboration Issue 3

To spark new collaborations in basic, clinical and translational research, the RCMI Translational Research Network (RTRN) and the RCMI Multidisciplinary and Translational Research Infrastructure Expansion (RMATRIX or RCTR) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa co-sponsored a Speed Networking Café event on Wednesday, June 29, 2011 at the medical school campus. This event gave investigators the opportunity to interact with colleagues from diverse disciplines, find new collaborators and discuss possible joint projects. Twenty-eight participants attended from the departments of Medicine, Anatomy, Cell and Molecular Biology, Native Hawaiian Health, Tropical Medicine, Human Nutrition, Food and Animal Science, Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering, as well as the Schools of Nursing and Public Health and affiliated hospitals.
