Meeting to Unveil NIH Neurological, Behavioral Toolbox for Clinical Research

July 18, 2012


Register now to attend "Unveiling the NIH Toolbox," a free scientific conference on September 10-11 in Bethesda, Md.

The conference unveils the NIH Toolbox for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function—a set of neurological and behavioral health measurements designed for use particularly in large-scale research studies such as epidemiological studies or clinical trials.

The NIH Toolbox provides a battery of online and royalty-free measures of motor, cognitive, sensory and emotional function for study participants aged three to 85 years. The toolbox was developed by a team of more than 250 scientists from nearly 100 academic institutions.

The meeting will feature lectures, interactive demonstrations and panel discussions about the development, testing and use of the NIH Toolbox in biomedical research.

You may also attend an optional "Administering the NIH Toolbox" training workshop following the conference on September 12-14.
