The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) welcome you to the first workshop “Innovations in Technologies to Extend the Golden Hour” to discuss bioengineered solutions for improved diagnostic treatment of acute injuries and shock. The purpose of this two-day meeting is to link nascent bioimaging and bioengineered solutions with the needs of the Departments of Defense and Health and Human Services, while offering an opportunity for subject matter experts to gather and determine the state of the science and regulatory policy in critical care trauma and resuscitation while discussing current and future research efforts that will lead to concrete solutions.
This meeting is organized in collaboration with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), Combat Casualty Care Research Program (JPC-6), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
We strongly encourage taking the Metro to the Natcher Conference Center. The Natcher Conference Center is a 5-minute walk from the Medical Center station on the Red Line. There are very few visitor parking spaces at NIH and a three-hour limit is enforced. There is an off campus garage for visitors on Rockville Pike, but parking is limited. More information on parking can be found here: https://www.nih.gov/about-nih/visitor-information/parking
If you decide to take the Metro to campus, the Visitors Center is located at the top of the escalators of the Medical Center Metro Station entrance, approximately 50 yards from the street and facing the entrance to the Metro station. Enter at the blue Welcome sign and proceed to your right through security. All persons and bags will be screened. Lines to obtain your visitors badge will be on the other side of security; please remember to bring a government-issued photo ID. Maps of main campus are also available in the Visitor Center.
Walking Directions to the Conference Center
Once you obtain your visitors badge, proceed to your left, up the stairs or elevator to the upper level exit of the Visitors Center. Once outside, follow the signs down the hill to the Natcher Conference Center (Building 45). The curved, glass building should be straight ahead with the entrance at the end of the walkway. Proceed through the doors of the Natcher Conference Center.
Attendees can order lunch ahead of time through a vendor (information found here) or use the cafeteria in the Natcher Conference Center.
The restaurant is a short walk away from the Bethesda Metro Station and the Hyatt Regency Bethesda. Parking is available in public garages nearby. The buffet price is $30 and includes one meal per person with a glass of wine or beer (and tax and tip). Please bring cash, if possible.
