NIH, NSF officials to discuss KU research

National Institutes of Health Director Elias Zerhouni and National Science Foundation Assistant Director Judith Ramaley will deliver remarks at the Research Collaboration Summit on Saturday, Sept. 18, at the Dole Institute of Politics.

State Rep. Tom Sloan, R-Lawrence, chairman of the Higher Education Committee in the Kansas House and a leader in the Kansas Legislature for increased life sciences funding and research, invited the scientists to KU.

Zerhouni and Ramaley will address KU research administrators and government officials on expanding and improving the cooperation between private and public sectors in life sciences research.

“Zerhouni and Ramaley will give us insight on how KU and the private sector can grow the biosciences industry in Kansas and western Missouri,” Sloan said. “How do we work with NIH and NSF policies and procedures to expand the cooperation between public and private groups?”

Zerhouni also will visit the Hoglund Brain Imaging Center at the KU Medical Center campus on Friday, Sept. 17. He will tour the center in Kansas City, Kan., with Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., at 10 a.m.

In fiscal year 2003, federally funded research expenditures totaled $133 million, and federally financed science and engineering research expenditures totaled $91 million at KU, according to KUCR statistics.
