The Rhode Island IDeA Symposium is an annual science symposium that brings together research investigators from across the state of Rhode Island to collaborate on projects funded by Institutional Development Awards (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health.

This gathering showcases research discovery, allows sharing of best practices and opportunities to better coordinate the basic, clinical, and translational research and investigator development programs that are supported by Rhode Island NIH IDeA event sponsors.

We look forward to you joining us for this highly interactive science gathering!
