So glad to take part in the May 16 groundbreaking for the Surgery, Radiology and Laboratory Medicine (SRLM) wing of the NIH Clinical Center. The expansive new wing will house: the Department of Perioperative Medicine; Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, Department of Laboratory Medicine, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Cardiovascular Intervention Program; several National Cancer Institute laboratories; and patient service areas. As shown here at the podium, we were honored to be joined by Andrea Palm, deputy secretary, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Also pictured (left to right): Dan Wheeland, NIH associate director for Research Facilities; Nina Schor, NIH deputy director for Intramural Research; James Gilman NIH Clinical Center CEO; me; Steven Rosenberg, chief, Surgery Branch, National Cancer Institute; and Alfred Johnson, NIH deputy director for Management. Modernizing the Clinical Center will help to ensure that this amazing facility continues to provide high quality patient care alongside cutting-edge biomedical research.

NIH Welcomes HHS Leaders to Campus

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

On November 4, NIH was visited by U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra and HHS Deputy Secretary Andrea Palm. It was my pleasure to join in welcoming them to our Bethesda, MD campus and sharing some of the exciting research conducted here. In this photo, Secretary Becerra (front left) and Deputy Secretary Palm (standing beside him) visit a lab in NIH’s Dale and Betty Bumpers Vaccine Research Center (VRC) for a briefing on coronavirus vaccine development. Speaking to everyone is Nancy Sullivan (front right), VRC senior investigator. In front of me, joining in the briefing are (from left to right): Tony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID); John Mascola, VRC Director; and Richard A. Koup, VRC Deputy Director. Credit: NIH
