Good luck Mr President and Dr Collins in the quest to defeat the Coronavirus. The Virus makes my quest to find an innovation cure for my Homonymous Hemianopia seem not so important. However, I have faith in … such a miracle some day.
NIH Vaccine Research Center visit by American President Mr. Trump has been elegantly showcased!
The continued medical research efforts of the American scientists/clinical research/public health team at NIH certainly deserves a big applause for developing innovative vaccine-immunotherapy regimens and protocols with eventual long-term patient-friendly public health impact.
In fact, being currently based at my homecountry India, I have been amazed at the Vaccine-safety-patient-friendly advice imparted to me as an Asian Indian unmarried female scientist/research expert, by clinical experts at prestigious Medical Centers/Universities at Texas, Nebraska, New York, USA during my Graduate School Biomedical Sciences research assignments at the Postdoctoral scientist level, as part of mandatory ethical medical records’ submission including vaccinations for Hepatitis, MMR, Gardasil/HPV, etc. Awareness lectures coupled with patient-friendly pre-post-vaccination interventions should be encouraged.
Adverse events post-vaccination should be well-documented at American research centers.
I understand Dr. Fauci is “the man” relative to infectious diseases, but would love to see Dr. Collins be a more public ‘face’ for the NIH. His presence, demeanor and mind I believe could be very helpful to the nation during these unsettling times. Thank you!
Good job doctor god bless you and your family keep up.
Your guys are lucky to have Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett!! Brilliant portfolio in terms of vaccine research on respiratory vaccination research!!!!!
Dr. Corbette. Thank you for the hard work you are doing. In Detroit, it is true more Blacks are getting the virus than Whites. However, more whites are dying. Do what do you attribute this? I fear it has to do with lack of social distancing in the Black community. Especially among young people. Throughout the pandemic the police has had to disperse many gatherings. Just yesterday in Chicago, a party of nearly a thousand people were dispersed. Does anyone have thoughts?
Appointed the 16th Director of NIH by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate. He was sworn in on August 17, 2009. On June 6, 2017. President Donald Trump announced his selection of Dr. Collins to continue to serve as the NIH Director.
