GW/ICF Research & Evaluation Forum

The Office of Industry & Corporate Research is proud to co-host a series of forums with our industry partner, ICF, addressing topics such as child health, cancer research methods, obesity, bio-informatics, public health preparedness, genetics/genomics, survey methods, and transportation. The series is the result of a broader memorandum of understanding signed by GW and ICF in 2014 to identify areas of mutual interest with respect to federal government agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and others providing grant or contract funding opportunities.

Look for details to come about future forums, which may include food insecurity, autism in adults, opiate abuse, and climate effects on health. Do you have questions or comments? Let us know by emailing the Office of Industry and Corporate Research at [email protected].
