Animal Research Tribute, Sept. 16
An Animal Research Program Tribute & Dedication Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 16 at 9:30 a.m. on the south side of Bldg. 10.
The animal research advisory committee and the IC animal program directors decided to commemorate the exceptional efforts and contributions made by the research animals and animal care and use community to the mission of NIH and the many health advances that have been supported.
The commemoration will be a bronze plaque affixed to a granite boulder to be placed on the south side of the Clinical Center. The boulder will be located in a quiet, reflective garden under a large tree with two benches along with discrete landscaping elements. The plaque will read:
“With recognition and gratitude to the research animals and the NIH animal care and use community that have contributed to exceptional biomedical research advances. Presented by the Animal Research Advisory Committee.”
All are welcome to the dedication ceremony, which is being held in conjunction with the 2016 NIH Research Festival.
