A taste of NIH research. That’s what the Research Festival is all about. And for the past 30 years, the festival has provided a lively venue for intramural scientists to share their work with their peers.
Highlights of the concurrent symposia on bench-to-bedside homeruns; microbiota; long-term effects of early exposure to environmental toxins; inflammation and chronic disease; precision medicine; and computational biology.
The “Minerals in Medicine” exhibition, at the NIH Clinical Center, features crystals and minerals on loan from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. The exhibit showcases more than 40 minerals that enable the creation of life-saving medicines and cutting-edge medical equipment used in health-care facilities worldwide.
