The Transforming Health: Fulfilling the Promise of Research conference highlighted cutting-edge medical research in the public and private sectors. The conference brought together leading voices from the private sector, government, academia, and patient communities to discuss how to gain the most from our investment in research and overcome the barriers to integrating new knowledge into better health care for all.
