The event's objective is to facilitate the exchange of information between laboratory and clinical researchers to accelerate the translation of basic scientific discoveries into clinical applications.

FARE 2007 Winners Are Awarded
The annual NIH-wide FARE competition - sponsored by the NIH Fellows Committee, the Scientific Directors, the NIH Office of Research on Women's Health, and the NIH Office of Intramural Training and Education - provides recognition for outstanding scientific research performed by intramural postdoctoral fellows.
This year's FARE awardees include 91 fellows from NCI's CCR, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, and DCP. They also receive a certificate and $1,000 in support to attend a scientific conference of their choice, and are asked to serve as judges for the following year's competition.
To apply, each April, fellows submit abstracts of their research, which are then peer reviewed by a jury of scientists whose work received awards in previous years. Visit http://felcom.nih.gov/FARE for more details.
