Francis Collins holding a flu virus model

I had the pleasure of providing the opening remarks at the 32nd NIH Research Festival back on September 12, 2018. In my right hand is a  model of the flu virus. I’m posting this photo belatedly as a gentle reminder: Remember to get your flu shot this year. Credit: NIH

Dr. Collins speaks at a podium at the NIH research festival

We kicked off the 32nd NIH Research Festival on September 12, 2018. This annual three-day event showcases the incredible breadth of research conducted by NIH scientists. I offered some opening remarks, holding up this 3D model of the flu virus to highlight work underway on the NIH campus to better map viral structures. Credit: NIH
