Celebrating NIH Intramural Science in One Day
Report from the Single-Day 2019 NIH Research Festival
The Research Festival “was very high energy,” said Amy Newman (acting scientific director for the National Institute on Drug Abuse) who along with John Gallin (scientific director for the Clinical Center) co-chaired the 2019 Research Festival held on September 11. “It was all about the celebration.”
The annual Research Festival, which in recent years has been a three-day event, was condensed into one day packed full of exciting talks (even one by an NIH alum who is also a Nobel laureate), special exhibits on intramural resources, posters, the Technical Sales Association Vendor Tent Show, a performance by the NIH Director’s Band (a.k.a. “ARRA” or “The Affordable Rock ‘n’ Roll Act”), and more.
