Philanthropist Bill Gates visited NIH Dec. 11 as part of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation-NIH fifth annual consultative workshop. He attended two vaccine panel sessions—one on universal influenza and the other on tuberculosis. Ten working groups also met during the day-long session to discuss collaboration in areas including HIV/AIDS; malaria and neglected tropical diseases; tuberculosis; maternal, neonatal and child health; and epidemic preparedness. Above, Gates (c) walks toward the meeting at the John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center with NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci (l) and NIH director Dr. Francis Collins. At right, Gates addresses the audience.
