Meeting With NIH Distinguished Scholars

Francis Collins meets with NIH distinguished scholars

The NIH will soon launch its Distinguished Scholars Program to enhance diversity among tenure track investigators in the Intramural Research Program. On October 1, 2018, I joined Michael Gottesman (back row, second left) and Hannah Valentine (back row middle, standing next to me), NIH’s chief officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity, and other NIH leaders and mentors in meeting with the first group of 13 distinguished scholars after work at a Bethesda, MD restaurant. It was my pleasure to talk about the pursuit of excellence at NIH and in science in general. Credit: NIH
