Focus Meetings are small meetings that would follow a similar discussion-based model to the annual Forbeck Forum. However, unlike the Forum which is organized and overseen by the Foundation and its Scientific Advisory Board, Focus Meetings are proposed and organized by a scientist or clinicians who are, or have previously been, Forbeck Scholars.  The concept of doing this was to provide an opportunity for young scientists to organize a ‘Junior Forbeck Forum’. These meetings have become a venue to delve into new ideas and discuss new approaches to research.


Past participants and Forbeck Scholars are welcome to submit a meeting topic to the Foundation. The Scientific Advisory Board will review the topic proposals on a quarterly basis.
