Welcome to The National Institutes of Health Director's Blog!

November 8, 2012View for printing

I'm starting this blog to highlight new discoveries in biology and medicine that I think are game changers, noteworthy, or just plain cool. Depending on what's going on in the world of biomedical research, I may tell you about an interesting study in a journal, or share my thoughts about a news item or public health issue.

My own research background has involved hunting for disease genes and leading the effort to sequence the human genome. So naturally this blog may gravitate a bit towards genomics and personalized medicine, but I promise you it won't stop there. I want this blog to cover the amazing range of biomedical research--from a cell biologist developing new insights into the intricacies of signal transduction to a medical doctor investigating new therapies in a clinical research trial.
