Raising the Curtain on a New Blog Design

Looking at the new blog design

Welcome to the redesigned NIH Director’s Blog! I hope you like it. While I’ll keep on bringing you exciting advances in NIH-supported science every Tuesday and Thursday, I’ve added a NIH Director’s Album to share photos and videos of some of the amazing people that I meet with—from inspiring high school science students to world-famous celebrities. What’s more, the blog’s new design is a lot more mobile friendly, since I know a lot of you are using laptops less these days.

I welcome your feedback on the redesign—and your ideas on how to make my blog even better moving forward. To share those thoughts, I encourage you to take part in this short readership survey that requires only a minute or two to complete. Thank you!

We Did It!

The Only Gift I Want This Season … Is Your Thoughts!

Posted on by Dr. Francis Collins

Season Greetings & Happy New YearFrom my “house” at NIH to yours, I’d like to wish each of you and your loved ones a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthful New Year. Throughout the past year, I hope that you’ve enjoyed the entries in this blog, sharing just a few of the many breakthroughs in biomedical research and introducing you to some of the young scientists who fill me with such hope for the future. As we prepare to turn the NIH Director’s Blog calendar to 2016, I look forward to bringing you even more exciting discoveries that show the power of science to build a healthier tomorrow.

But I need your help! In this season of giving, I’d like to ask each of you for a little something: your thoughts on how to make what I think is a good blog even better. So, please click on the “gift” below to take part in a brief, anonymous survey that should take no more than a couple of minutes. Thanks so much for your time!Open Survey
