Location

Masur Auditorium
Clinical Center
National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD

Special note: Security on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus is very tight. All vehicles are inspected before entry onto the campus. All visitors must present picture identification (i.e., driver's license, passport, government or military identification) and go through a metal detector and personal property inspection (purses, briefcases, back packs, etc.) to enter the Clinical Center. Please allow plenty of time because inspection areas can be very congested early in the morning. For information regarding campus security procedures, entrance to the NIH campus, and parking, please click here: http://www.nih.gov/about/visitorsecurity.htm.
