UIDP30: Conference in College Station, TX

March 23, 2020 - March 26, 2020

UIDP30 will be hosted by Texas A&M University

Securing a Healthy Future through Innovative Partnerships

Technological advancements are creating tremendous opportunities and formidable challenges for today’s society. Innovative therapeutics, diagnostics, devices, and other solutions are improving human and animal health globally. Expanding the reach for these new technologies is critical and will require collaboration between academic institutions, government agencies, and industry. At the same time, the associated data security and foreign influence issues brought about by innovation must be carefully considered.

Please join us for UIDP30, hosted by Texas A&M University. Participants will begin their first day with tours in Houston—home to BP’s US headquarters and other high-tech facilities, including its Global Monitoring Center, as well as Houston Methodist Hospital, located in the Texas Medical Center. UIDP30 continues ninety miles away in College Station, home to Texas A&M University, where we will address these and many other contemporary issues that are critical to successful partnerships.

Registration opening soon. Email questions to
