Group Represents NIH Community
New Advisory Board Considers Security Concerns

By Carla Garnett

Dr. Robert Desimone
By the time NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni had announced at a June 18 Town Meeting the creation of a new NIH advisory group to consider security concerns, the impact of the NIH Community Advisory Board for Security (CABS) was already being felt — and widely appreciated — every morning by thousands of employees who work on the Bethesda campus.

In Anticipation of Crunch
Committee Carves Out 900+ New Parking Slots

By Rich McManus

As a prescription for the impending parking crunch, NIH's ad hoc parking advisory committee has identified five new temporary parking areas — grassy fields that can be graveled relatively easily — and has converted to "stacked" parking five existing lots that have not heretofore hosted aisle parking. The newly configured lots debut on Monday, Sept. 22 and create room for more than 900 vehicles. "But we still expect something of a shortfall (in total parking availability) come October, so we are urging employees to consider alternatives to driving every day to work," said Dr. Michael Gottesman, NIH deputy director for intramural research and chair of the parking committee.
