@Pyrrhus looks like an early start with 7:30 Registration and a planned nine to five day!

Last year I remember they did a great job keeping on schedule!
I didn't realize they did one of these last year, did anything come of it? I'm wondering if I should have high expectations of new research data or increased funding from the NIH?

@Belbyr there were outstanding presentations at the 2018 Conference. If you're interested Ron Davis' is on YouTube:


Nicely formatted DVD's at reasonable cost featuring all presenters and prior conferences can be ordered on the IIME website.

As for NIH funding, don't know what impact this Conference has. However, last year NIH's Dr. Avi Nath was a presenter and also attended the two-day closed door ME Biomedical Research Colloquium which precedes it. [This year's Colloquium is May 29-30.]

He commented [his words] the scientific discussion at the Colloquium was "superb," progress being made was "mindboggling," there's "real data" here, and that "huge strides" have been made in a short amount of time. It's good he experienced this firsthand, I think.
