The InnovationWell 2009 community of practice meeting program with
abstracts is now complete and available at http://innovationwell.com/comty_conferencesprog09

The InnovationWell program will cover discussion of topics on
Collaboration in Discovery and Development, Translational
Bioinformatics, Systems Biology, Biomarkers, Blood-Brain Barrier
Modeling and Predictive Toxicology.
More detailed program below.

This annual community of practice meeting is taking place for the
fifth time and brings together a unique combination of pharmaceutical
and healthcare industry experts, principal investigators and
researchers from the academic and government sectors, and leaders from
innovative enterprises.  The smaller and more intimate meeting format
pursued has fostered the type of collaboration not always found at
large conferences.

Registration fees include food (lunch, dinner, breaks and evening
refreshments) for the days attended.  Furthermore, arrangements have
been made for some affordable accommodations (preferred rates), making
the meeting economical to attend. We now have a great deal of
information on preferred rates and travel directions available at
