Word has gotten out: Other institutions and organizations have contacted us hoping to learn how to run their own events.Rivella and Greenbaum continued talking in the weeks after the event, later bringing in computational biologist Alain Laederach of the Wadsworth Center at the New York State Department of Health.The trio has now submitted an NIH Challenge Grant that will start with the computational biology of these mutant RNAs (Laederach), their structure (Greenbaum), and their effect on the phenotype and gene transfer of Cooley's anemia (Rivella).It's a research project that may have never come together, or at least come together as quickly, if it hadn't been for the speed-networking event."The bottom line is, if you don't meet people, you will never find someone who can find you new information and a new vision," Rivella says.
This article is intended to provide suggestions for putting together your own speed-networking event, using ours as an example.
