As part of its 10-year commemoration activities, the NIH Common Fund is holding a video and song competition to showcase Common Fund–supported activities in a fun and creative way. Grantees and program staff were encouraged to submit brief, original works that would be accessible and engaging to the public.
The video entries have been posted, and voting will be open until May 9. View the videos on YouTube and “like” your favorites to vote. Videos from NIH Collaboratory investigators and committee members include:
- 3. Kids Say the Darndest Things: Now They’re Talking About Colon Cancer (STOP CRC; PI, Dr. Gloria Coronado)
- 5. A Better Way to Manage Chronic Pain (PPACT; PI, Dr. Lynn DeBar)
- 21. Clot Blocking (Dr. Barry Coller; NIH Collaboratory Steering Committee)
- 43. Now Matters Now (Suicide Prevention; PI, Dr. Greg Simon)
Song entries are still being screened.
Winners will receive recognition at the Common Fund 10-Year Commemoration Symposium in June 2014, where NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins will perform the winning song.
