The first lecture took the form of a symposium called "The Joy of Discovery" that celebrated her life. Held July 9 in Wilson Hall, the symposium featured scientists who had worked with Salzman talking about their recollections of her and about their scientific discoveries that were highlights in their research careers. The audience included her family, friends and colleagues.

Cartoon Watchers Benefit NIH Charities

Angelica (r), the decidedly un-angelic character from the cartoon series Rugrats, visited NIH recently to indulge in uncharacteristic altruism — she presented a check for $6,000 to the NIH charities. Her mission was sponsored by the Washington Baltimore Cable Council and Pay-Per-View Network, Inc., who contributed $1 to NIH charities for every viewer who tuned into Rugrats during the month of June. Angelica also visited patients at the Clinical Center and the Children's Inn during her visit. Here she greets Matt Wright, 18, of Elkhart, Ind., who is an NIAID patient.
