Presidential Visit to Vaccine Research Center
What a privilege it was to welcome President Donald Trump to NIH on March 3, 2020 for a tour of the Dale and Betty Bumpers Vaccine Research Center (VRC), which is overseen by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Research is underway in the VRC to develop a safe and effective vaccine for the novel coronavirus. Here, NIAID Director Tony Fauci (center) discusses vaccine research with the President. To my right is Barney Graham, the VRC’s deputy director. To my left are John Mascola, VRC director; Alex Azar, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services; President Trump; and Kizzmekia Corbett, a VRC research fellow who is working on developing a vaccine for the novel coronavirus.
