Annually, members from all seventeen BEST programs, the NIH, and the BEST external advisory committee come together for a 2-day meeting to collaborate and discuss approaches and challenges associated with the BEST initiatives and goals.

Read the editorial about the annual meeting published in Science Translational Medicine.

The Annual NIH BEST Meeting is open only to consortium members, the NIH, invited PhD students and postdoctoral scholars, and external stakeholders. In the future, we hope to invite members of the broader national scientific community (more PhD students and postdoctoral scholars, faculty, career development professionals, companies, and scientific societies) to join our annual meeting.
