The PTBi Collaboratory is a forum jointly sponsored by PTBi California and PTBi East Africa to facilitate open interchange of ideas and information to collectively develop solutions that will decrease the global burden of prematurity. We aim to foster transdisciplinary collaboration among unlikely partners. Each Collaboratory will feature a unique group of speakers who will lead interactive discussions to describe current knowledge, identify gaps and generate new solutions among collaborators and communities across California and East Africa.
