CC 70th Anniversary Events Continue
Former NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins will give a special Grand Rounds Lecture to mark the Clinical Center’s 70th anniversary on Wednesday, June 28 at noon in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10. There will be limited seating and the lecture will be available online at https://videocast.nih.gov/. Collins, a senior investigator at the National Human Genome Research Institute and special advisor to President Biden, will discuss the CC’s past and its future prospects.
Next month, the CC will feature “Science Related”–artwork with a scientific focus or created by people with scientific and medical backgrounds.
The exhibit, on display beginning July 8 throughout the building’s first floor—will feature artists with disparate mediums: wood art and illustrations from Candice Tavares, a clinical pharmacy specialist in palliative care at Medstar Washington Hospital Center; large format botanic photographs from Amy Lamb, a former NIH postdoctoral fellow; abstract paintings inspired by science and medicine from Michele Banks, who studied at George Washington University and Harvard University; paintings of historic microscopes from the Golub Collection of Antique Microscopes at University of California-Berkeley by Sue Fierston; and art from printmaking photographer Barbara Southworth, who combines her twin passions of art and science.
