Work and Pleasure Mix in the Rockies
|| When you work at NIAID's Rocky Mountain Laboratories in
Hamilton, Montana, there's a time to work and a time to play. Dr.
Steve Porcella (above, center), a postdoctoral fellow, shows NIAID
summer students "the ropes." During the summer, 26 high school and
college students worked with RML scientists. Some students
worked in other areas, caring for animals, performing secretarial and
administrative tasks, or doing jobs in the shop and maintenance
department. Four of NIAID's 16 intramural laboratories are located
at RML and conduct basic and applied research in viral, bacterial
and prion diseases and related clinical disorders. Prion diseases such
as scrapie and bovine spongiform encephalopathy and tick-borne
diseases such as Lyme disease are major research areas.
