NIGMS Grant to Advance Study of the Living Body Through Tiny Transmitters

Dr. Paul Farmer



The study of the living body through tiny electronic devices whose components are so small as to be almost invisible will be greatly advanced by a 4-year program supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.

According to Dr. Frederick L. Stone, Director of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, this award is an important step in the Institute's expanding program of support for biomedical engineering, one of the general clinical areas for which the Institute is a major source of research support.

NIH Marks Women's History Month

Ann Timmons, a communication artist, performed a one-woman play about equal rights pioneer Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

"Critical Thinking." That's how women at NIH change America, according to organizers of the 2005 Women's History Month celebration, who adapted the occasion's national theme — "Women Change America" — for the NIH audience.

Leading off the celebration, sponsored by NIH's Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management on Mar. 9, Ann Timmons, a communication artist, performed the one-woman play, Off the Wall: The Life and Works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Author in 1892 of The Yellow Wallpaper, a semi-autobiographical account of a woman's struggle with depression, Gilman was a pundit and lecturer on equal rights for women.
