The Collaborative Research Network (CORNET) Awards provide seed money to stimulate innovative, interdisciplinary, team-based research which will give rise to future extramural funding.



To celebrate the productive year of our CORNET Award teams, and to learn more about their discoveries, we are hosting the second annual symposium where CORNET teams will present the results of their work. CORNET Teams who’s one-year Award period has concluded will be asked to present a short talk, followed by a Q&A session.

When: October 29, 2018 from 9:30am – 2:15pm

Where: The Freeman Auditorium (930 Madison Avenue, 3rd Floor).

Please RSVP by October 24, 2018 via Outlook Forms.

This initiative should be viewed as much more than a mechanism for seed money for future funding opportunities – it is a unique opportunity for developing a broad collaborative program in drug discovery that will yield the generation of new intellectual property (IP) and patents, and the establishment of new academic-industry partnerships that could lead to the founding of new companies.
