Please Help with NIH Survey

Dear IHIF Members and Friends,

As you may know, the Indiana Health Industry Forum is the state affiliate of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO).  BIO is conducting a survey of its member companies addressing the relationship between the biotech industry and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) with a goal of answering the age-old question, “What are the greatest challenges for companies interacting with NIH and what aspects of current interaction are working well.”

In an effort to get as thorough a review as possible, we are asking you if you would be willing to help us gather deeper survey data.  BIO is seeking your feedback on what you view as the most challenging scientific and process issues associated with clinical research and development.  They are also seeking information about your knowledge and experience in working with NIH.  To take the short survey, please click here<>.

As you know, NIH is the largest funder of biomedical research in the world. It provides critical funding to all sectors of biomedical research, including the biomedical industry.  In December of last year, the NIH created a new center devoted to advancing translational research, the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). The goal of NCATS is to develop new technologies and methods that will help the entire sector develop safer and more effective drugs and diagnostics more efficiently.

More than one employee from your company may take this survey, so please forward to your colleagues.  This survey should only take 15 – 20 minutes to complete.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
