Teaching a Discerning Dog New Tricks

It was my pleasure to offer an opening hello remotely from my home to start the 13th annual NIH Career Symposium—An Online Event. Little did I know that among those tuning in live was an inquisitive canine named Augustus Diego Hunt, or just plain Gus for short. Though Gus likely shed his glasses later to investigate other sights and smells in his loving household, the busy afternoon symposium presented some of the many promising career choices that are now available to young scientists. The event was held on May 8, 2020 and sponsored by the NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE). Credit: Jacqueline Newell-Hunt with a tail wag to Gus.
