NIH Director Collins Meets With SfN Postdocs

NIH Director Poses For A Photograph with SfN Postdocs, other NIH OfficialsDr. Francis Collins, the new director of the National Institutes of Health, and the directors of three major NIH institutes, Story Landis (NINDS), Tom Insel (NIMH) and Nora Volkow  (NIDA) had a continental breakfast with 12 neuroscience postdoctoral fellows during the 40th Annual Neuroscience Meeting held recently in Chicago.

Among the postdocs present, the Department's own Diego Gutnisky shared an informal conversation with the NIH directors about the prospects and concerns of postdoctoral training.

Gutnisky stated, "The meeting provided us with an excellent opportunity to share our own concerns and ideas with the NIH director, and to hear from him directly that improving the postdoctoral experience is an important issue on his agenda."
