CIT can broadcast your seminar, conference or meeting live to a world-wide
audience over the Internet as a real-time streaming video. The event can
be recorded and made available for viewers to watch at their convenience
as an on-demand video or a downloadable file. CIT can also broadcast
NIH-only or HHS-only content.
The Festival will feature three sets of plenary lectures, a blitz of micro-talks providing a snapshot of selected FARE awardees' work and terrific poster presentations from some of our top junior scientists across the NIH. The Festival is an opportunity to learn from the very best, to see what's happening in your own backyard and to share novel ideas.
