NIAID Has New Lab Complex
Bldg. 33 Dedicated to Congressman C.W. Bill Young
  Rep. C.W. Bill Young (l) accepts an etching of Bldg. 33 from NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni.
The C.W. Bill Young Center for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases was dedicated May 2 in honor of 18-term Congressman Young (R-FL), chair of the House appropriations subcommittee on defense. The brilliant spring afternoon found a crowd of friends, colleagues and admirers gathered beneath a canopy outside the new laboratory complex, built for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The 4-story, 84,000-net-square-foot integrated research facility was named for the man whom NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci called "one of the most important figures responsible for doubling the NIH budget."

Hundreds Take Their Children to NIH for a Day
  Gowning up is part of the kids’ fun.
On the typical workday at NIH, the most underrepresented minority on campus is children. Once a year, however, Take Your Child to Work Day remedies that situation. The sight of children in the hallways and sidewalks of campus is slightly jarring, like when a college student — inured to the company of peers — wanders past a day care center and suddenly realizes that the entire world is not age 18-35.
