On Oct. 26, Dr. Michael Kuo traveled to the NIH from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to present at the 16th Annual John Doppman Memorial Lecture for Imaging Sciences. Kuo and his team have pioneered the field of Radiogenomics, which is the integration of multi-scale data with conventional imaging modalities such as computer tomography, positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging used to help guide patient outcomes, and to predict treatment response. The Doppman lecture series is a tribute to Dr. John Doppman, who died of cancer 16 years ago. Doppman was chief of the Diagnostic Radiology Department for 26 years and an interventional radiologist at the Clinical Center for 36 years.

Dr. Rita Volochayev, a nurse practitioner with the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Clinical Research Branch, works with both pediatric and adult patient populations at the NIH CC. She came to the NIH in 2006 to work on her dissertation and subsequently ended up staying upon receiving her doctorial degree. Volochayev said being a nurse practitioner at the NIH is a unique challenge. Nurse practitioners at the NIH have mastered the ability to lead and contribute to almost every discipline at many different levels. The role is a blending of clinical, research, administrative, regulatory, educational, mentoring and supervisory skills. Usually, no two nurse practioners' roles are the same at the NIH. Basically, nurse practitioners function as the primary point of contact for everything and anything.
