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.

Gates Collaboration Telebriefing
The NIH and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Seattle, will invest at least $200 million over the next four years to develop affordable gene-based cures globally for sickle cell disease and HIV infection. The announcement of this timely collaboration was made during a late-morning telebriefing at NIH on October 23, 2019. Here, I met with two of my fellow participants on the call: Gary Gibbons (left), director of NIH’s Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; and Trevor Mundel, (middle), president of the Gates Foundation’s global health efforts. Also joining the telebriefing remotely by phone were Tony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; and Matishidiso Moeti, director of the World Health Organization’s Regional Office for Africa.
