President Biden Gets a First-Hand Look at NIH Research

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

POTUS Visit to NIH's VRC

On February 11, 2021, I had the great honor of welcoming President Joe Biden to the National Institutes of Health, where he toured the Dale and Betty Bumpers Vaccine Research Center. Joining me in briefing the President about our recent progress against COVID-19 were Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett (right), an NIH researcher who helped to develop COVID-19 vaccines in record time, and Dr. Anthony Fauci (far left), Director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a key leader of the President’s coronavirus response team. As we move forward in our tireless efforts to advance treatments, tests, and vaccines for COVID-19, I’m heartened by the President’s acknowledgement of NIH and the amazing science that we support.

    We are very appreciative of the role Dr. Corbett has played in helping in this fight against this COVID-19 virus and being African American parents we’re definitely thankful for the impact she’s had on our Daughter who’s in her 3rd year at a HBCU studying Biology and inspired by Dr Corbett leadership! Let her know that we appreciate it so much
