RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM WILL EXPLORE THE SCIENCE OF COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE

November 18, 2009

WHAT: The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) will celebrate a decade of rigorous research with NCCAM's 10th Anniversary Research Symposium: Exploring the Science of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Speakers will discuss topics including natural products, mind-body medicine, and the intersection of behavioral science and integrative medicine. They include Jeffrey I. Gordon, M.D., Claire M. Fraser-Liggett, Ph.D., Joseph P. Noel, Ph.D., Bruce R. Rosen, M.D., Ph.D., Richard J. Davidson, Ph.D., and keynote speaker Susan Folkman, Ph.D.

WHY:People have used some complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies since ancient times and often with little scientific evidence. Since its inception in 1999, NCCAM has addressed the need to examine CAM approaches through the scope of rigorous scientific research and supported more than 2,200 research projects at scientific institutions across the United States and around the world. This symposium will highlight advances in the field of CAM research.

WHEN: Tuesday, December 8, 2009, 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. ET

WHERE: Masur Auditorium, Building 10, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, to develop a focus in clinical and translational research informatics.
