Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable Webinars


Project Scope:

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable hosts monthly webinars on issues in science, technology, and policy of national and international importance. The webinars are free and open to the pubic and facilitate cross-sector dialogue to engage Roundtable members and the science policy community. Webinars feature presentations from guest speakers and conversations between the speaker, the GUIRR staff host, and the listeners.

Description :   

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable hosted a webinar on the opportunities for research partnership with the International Space Station National Laboratory. The International Space Station is arguably one of humankind’s greatest technical achievements—orbiting some 250 miles above our planet, traveling at 17,500 miles per hour, and continuously habiting humans in microgravity for nearly 20 years. Aside from housing astronauts who help to push the boundaries of technology and innovation, the space station has also been home to over 2,500 different science experiments that leverage the facility’s unique microgravity environment. The space station is available to a myriad of government, academic, and commercial researchers all interested in looking at science through a new lens.

GUIRR convened a conversation with experts from the International Space Station National Laboratory to discuss the past, present, and future of research and development taking place aboard the space station that could have impacts into the way we live here on Earth. 

Free and open to the public.

Description :   

Recent data reveal that fewer than 20% of issued U.S. patents name at least one woman inventor and less than 8% of issued U.S. patents list a woman as the primary inventor. Research out of the The Ohio State University shows that the pipeline of inventors is more gender balanced, but that women drop out of the commercialization process because of systemic barriers that can be addressed. GUIRR hosted a webinar with Mary Juhas, director of the REACH for Commercialization™ program, and Ohio State ADVANCE Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Caroline Crisafulli to discuss how to dismantle these systemic barriers for women innovators and to address this persistent gender gap across academia, industry, and government. 

REACH for Commercialization™ is a program developed at The Ohio State University. The cohort-based model was first introduced in 2010 under the support of the National Science Foundation’s ADVANCE Institutional Transformation program. The program has been expanded and refined to offer personalized consultation. The engagement of an entrepreneur-in-residence and development of a close partnership with Rev1Ventures, an investor startup studio, have resulted in a significant increase in commercialization activity.

Description :   

GUIRR hosted a webinar on the NINDS Neuroscience and NIH HEAL Biomarker Programs, with the Director, Mary Ann Pelleymounter. This webinar provided an overview of the NINDS Neuroscience Biomarker Program along with general guidance for applications, and highlighted special biomarker initiatives for pain indications that are part of the NIH HEAL (Helping to End Addiction Long-Term) Initiative

Biomarkers are essential tools for the discovery and development of therapeutics, allowing improved and better informed clinical trial design. Biomarkers facilitate the evaluation of therapeutic intervention on disease progression or recurrence, and are also being used to improve early diagnosis and therapeutic outcomes in cases where disease manifestation could be significantly weakened with treatment. However, few biomarkers progress beyond discovery to clinical practice, and robust, well-validated biomarkers for use in Phase II clinical trials remain scant. The goal of the NINDS Neuroscience Biomarker Program is to promote and develop strong candidate biomarkers of neurological disease toward clinical use. The NIH HEAL Biomarker initiative is intended to promote the discovery and validation of strong candidate biomarkers and endpoints for pain that can be used to facilitate the development of non-addictive pain therapeutics.

Description :   

Scientific integrity is of utmost importance for all facets of the scientific community, yet issues continue to be widespread. The Scientific Integrity Consortium recently brought together representatives from multiple sectors to consider a set of principles and best practices to be used broadly across all scientific disciplines as a mechanism for community consensus on scientific integrity standards. GUIRR hosted a webinar with two members of the Consortium, Cathie Woteki and Sarah Rovito, to discuss the agreed upon principles and best practices and the recommended actions that will help implement them. The Scientific Integrity Consortium, convened by ILSI North America, represents four U.S. and three Canadian government agencies, eleven professional societies, six universities, and three nonprofit scientific organizations. In 2017 the group gleaned input from individual sectors and scientific disciplines to develop two principles and nine best practices to help strengthen policies already in place, aid in the development of new policies, and raise the importance of creating a culture in the scientific community that upholds scientific integrity. The Consortium seeks input from listeners on possibilities for influencing the development of standards by academic institutions, scientific organizations, and relevant government agencies.
