1. Do you have any suggestions for improvements in the NIH Institutional Review Board process and other mechanisms to protect the patients in NIH clinical trials?


2. Assessment and readjustment of NIH security measures are ongoing. How do you feel about more recent changes and proposed future actions?


3. What do you project will be the major challenges facing a new NIH director? What do you think should be the priorities of the person who will assume NIH leadership? What advice would you give a new director?


4. As always, the Catalyst is interested in what you would like to see on these pages. Too much of something? Too little of other things? Any specific story or research project you’d like to see covered? Send us your suggestions.


The NIH Catalyst is published bimonthly for and by the intramural scientists at NIH. Address correspondence to Building2, Room 2W23, NIH, Bethesda, MD 20892. Ph: (301) 402-1449; fax: (301) 402-4303; e-mail: <catalyst@nih.gov>.
