60th Anniversary Celebration (2013)

Clinical Center 60th Anniversary Celebration

These are both exciting and challenging times for NIH and for the NIH Clinical Center. The strides made in treating and curing diseases during our first 60 years have saved, lengthened and improved countless lives, and brought us to the threshold of even more exciting future discoveries.

We are committed to continuing our work as the research hospital for the nation; leading the nation and the world in making groundbreaking scientific discoveries that improve the lives of patients and their families; training our next generation of physician-scientists; and working together and sharing what we have learned with colleagues across the country and around the world.

We invite you to join us in celebrating our past accomplishments and in looking forward to the fruition of our current efforts, as well as yet-undreamed-of ways of turning discovery into health.

John I. Gallin, M.D., director of the NIH Clinical Center from 1994-2017
