New Bldg. 33 Complex To Focus on Infectious Diseases
By Carla Garnett
If all goes as planned over the course of the next 2 years, by November 2005 the northeastern corner of NIH's Bethesda campus will be the site of a new 150,000 gross-square-foot lab facility, 1,230-space multilevel parking garage, underground storm water management system and a plaza/courtyard. Currently dubbed the Bldg. 33 Complex, the project will be completed in several stages with the first stage set in motion in late September.

Institute Relay Draws Another Creative Crowd
By Rich McManus
In its 20th year, the NIH Institute Relay Challenge race has taken on some new cultural aspects, adopting the costume of such farcical runs as San Francisco's Bay to Breakers Race, and being better documented, via digital camera and videotape, than a World Trade Organization street protest. But it was all in good fun as more than 70 5-member coed teams ran circles around Bldg. 1 as several hundred friends, family and coworkers cheered them on.
