The 'House of Hope' Opens
Hatfield Dedicates New Hospital, Urges Major New Study

By Rich McManus

Mark O. Hatfield acknowledges crowd's ovation.

Nearly 7 years after he visited NIH to break ground for a new hospital to be named after him, former Sen. Mark O. Hatfield (R-OR) returned on Sept. 22 for the dedication of the Clinical Research Center, which he called a "human mosaic" embodying the vision, skills and perseverance of many, resulting in a "new community of hope." He also called for a major new national initiative on genes, environment and health, which would enroll up to 1 million Americans from all population groups and all parts of the country, for the benefit of future generations.

Giving Bldg. 1 the Run-Around
Largest Relay Race Ever Attracts Hundreds

By Rich McManus

Lots of things are more important than winning the 21st NIH Interinstitute Relay, which this year attracted a record 100 teams of five runners each. Having a clever team name and a distinctive T-shirt design are essential, as is having a large cadre of colleagues on hand to cheer you on and document your performance with digital cameras and videocams. Having your own bagpiper is extremely classy, as demonstrated by the team Western Blobs. But it is the spirit that mattered most on Sept. 24 as the largest crowd ever to watch the relay jammed the environs of Bldg. 1.
