Join us for the next event in the History and Context seminar series, organized by the Office of NIH History and Stetten Museum (ONHM). This lecture will be presented by Michele Lyons, Curator and Associate Director of the ONHM.

As Curator of the NIH Stetten Museum for the past 30 years, Michele Lyons has focused on preserving the history of the NIH through its material culture, including scientific and clinical instruments, artwork, clothing, and those miscellaneous items that tell compelling stories. Her most recent projects include collecting around NIH’s role during the pandemic, and looking at race and gender in NIH history. Lyons has been recognized for her work by many awards.

Seating in Wilson Hall will be quite limited. Attend virtually using the NIH Videocast link.
