Tradition Exported to Stokes Labs
Era of Scientific Distinction
Ends for Bldg. 3
By Rich McManus
Though it never enjoyed as lofty a designation as, say, Bldg. 1 or Bldg. 2, Bldg. 3 now being evacuated, or rather, "decommissioned" as its resident scientists prepare to decamp for the new Louis Stokes Laboratories (Bldg. 50) never took a back seat to any building on campus when it came to scientific distinction. Among some 19 scientists working there circa 1950-1951, 15 went on to become members of the National Academy of Sciences, and three of those subsequently became Nobel laureates, according to longtime laboratory chief Dr. Earl Stadtman, who is one of the NAS members.

Moving Beyond Buzzwords
By Carla Garnett
Stop thinking about managing diversity as an altruistic albatross or a
legal requirement. Instead, start making it a way of doing business
and a way of life. Shifts in the nation's population will soon make it
too expensive to do otherwise and the benefit of managing diversity
will be reflected in your organization's true bottom
line workforce success. That was the message delivered by
speakers at NIH's Apr. 4 Managing Diversity Forum.
