LATEST TWEETS FROM INNOVATION DISTRICT
App CURE ID developed by @ncats_nih_gov and @US_FDA for clinicians to report novel uses of existing drugs against #COVID19 disease presented at @ChildrensNatl @NIAIDNews Virtual Symposium
A great wrap up of the @CTSICN @NIAIDNews @ChildrensNatl opening session! My key takeaway is the #COVID19 racial and ethnicity disparity! We can do better. Kudos @Guaywoodford for a great Symposium
