Subject: Attend Salons on the Translational Research Enterprise

The Translational Research Enterprise – What Are We To Do?
Genetic Alliance Live Streamed Salons (in-person or on net/phone)
RSVP by December 10, 2010 at www.geneticalliance.org/salons<http://listserv.galists.org/t/517162/172173/609/0/>

No one is surprised in the 21st century when disease advocacy organizations are at the center of initiating, firing up, accelerating, and retooling research on a disease. What was once novel is now common. However, we could all use better systems to capitalize on the resources we all bring to the table. It is time to have conversations about keeping what works and creating new paradigms where they are needed.

Join Genetic Alliance at one or both of our upcoming salons on “The translational research enterprise – what are we to do?” We will use our dynamic salon format, coupled with online streaming technology, so you can join in person, via the net, or by phone. You don’t have to be from a disease advocacy organization to join. It is clear we all need collaborative partnerships; the time for silos is over.

As a means of transformative visioning, Genetic Alliance regularly holds salons, similar to the 17th - 19th century gatherings of intellectuals and other eminent individuals. In our case, individuals are not chosen for their expertise or the expansiveness of their resumes, but for their character and reputation as open-minded, curious, and willing to explore all sides of a given issue. Salons are fueled by the mechanism of open space, allowing unfettered thought and discussion; we leave our certitude and intellectual property at the door. Through our conversation, we realize more than any one of us could have alone. This is our chief aim: transformative knowledge through conversation with others. A variety of salons are held annually, in locations around the country. The salons are an increasingly useful way to practice openness and transformation; dynamic interaction around rigorous topics inevitably leads to disruptive and exciting solutions.

Join us in-person or online:
Salon 1: December 13, 2010 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Salon 2: December 22, 2010  12:00 – 2:00 PM

RSVP now at www.geneticalliance.org/salons<http://listserv.galists.org/t/517162/172173/609/0/>

Webcast information for those participating online will follow shortly. If you have questions, email Katie Zacharkiw at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>.
