IOM Committee Presentations (as of Aug 2012)

Since the IOM report on the "Evolution of Translational Omics: Lessons Learned and the Path Forward" was issued on March 23, 2012, there have been several scientific sessions and individual presentations by committee members discussing the rationale behind the report's recommendations in more detail. We've collected several of these below, and found them pretty useful.
