Dr. Francis Collins: I always appreciate the guidance and perspective that you bring us all whether it’s the Human Genome Project, your voice of reason in representing science in general and the role of NIH in particular, and no matter the venue: newspaper, television daytime or night time shows or interviews, or Congressional appearances. And I really appreciate your uncanny ability to reach so many groups on so many different levels. And, of course, I love your song-writing tributes!
