IPCP Annual Meeting Video 1
After nearly 12 months of intense work, monthly teleconference meetings and hundreds of emails sent back and forth across the country, team members on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant (1U19AI113048-01), were able to gather in person for the first time to discuss progress on this groundbreaking research project.
Hosted by Principal Investigator, Dr. Marc Baum, president of the Oak Crest Institute of Science, the first IPCP (Integrated Preclinical/Clinical Program) Annual Meeting was held July 15-17, 2015, in Pasadena, CA. The meeting brought together key personnel, Project and Core Leaders, and other stakeholders to review Year 1 activities on the grant project and to discuss activities to meet Year 2 specific aims.

“This was truly a unique event,” said Dr. Baum. “Our young scientists at Oak Crest, many of whom have not even finished their college degrees, had the chance to converse with top notch researchers from some of the most prestigious institutions in the country. They were able to discuss groundbreaking advances in drug formulations that are urgently needed to overcome inadequate disease treatment and prevention in the developing world. Where else would they have this type of amazing opportunity?” commented Dr. Baum.
