NIH History Day 2004
People make history. That's the point of the second annual NIH History Day to be held on Tuesday, Sept. 21, by the Office of NIH History. The highlight of the day will be a lecture by Dr. Thomas Söderqvist, professor of the history of medicine and director of the Medical Museion at the University of Copenhagen. The lecture, "The Seven Virtues of Biography, or What's the Use of Biographies of Life Scientists?" will be held at 3 p.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10. All are welcome.
This year's theme is "Scientific Biography," and the goal is to point out how advances in biomedical research depend on individual curiosity, perseverance and creativity, augmented occasionally by serendipity. The Office of NIH History encourages senior NIH scientists to send digital or paper copies of their CVs along with photos, both candid and posed, to be added to the office's biographical reference files. On History Day, collection stations will be staffed in the lobbies of Bldgs. 10, 50 and 37 for those who want to donate in person. For more information about the event or special accommodation, contact Dr. Sarah Leavitt, email@example.com or (301) 496-8856 or consult http://history.nih.gov.
