The Stetten Museum has two small exhibits on display in NIH's Building 10, the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center. Exhibits in the Clinical Center are lighted for viewing from morning to evening daily. There is no charge for admission.
The Stadtman Way: A Tale of Two Biochemists at NIH
This exhibit highlights the work of Drs. Thressa and Earl Stadtman, distinguished biochemists who have worked at the National Institutes of Health since 1950. It is located in the anteroom to the Lipsett Auditorium on the first floor of Building 10.
Marshall Nirenberg: Discovering the Genetic Code
Breaking the Genetic Code has
been temporarily dismantled for a construction project in the
Clinical Center. It will be redesigned and reinstalled.
This exhibit explores the Nobel Prize-winning work of NHLBI's Marshall Nirenberg, who cracked the genetic code in the early 1960s with the help of his NIH colleagues. It is located in the main elevator lobby on the first floor of Building 10.
The Stetten Museum also displays scientific instruments and other objects from its collection in several buildings on the NIH campus in Bethesda. These buildings are open to the public during regular business hours.
This Siemens 1-A Electron Microscope was used for over three decades by Dr. Albert Kapikian, NIAID.
The instrument, used to detect and characterize various viruses, is now on display in the lobby of Building 50.
Varian A-60 NMR
A Varian A-60 NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) used at NIH in the 1960s is now on display in the lobby of the Natcher Conference Center, Building 45, on the NIH campus in Bethesda.
Past in the Present
Located in the 3rd floor corridor of Building 1, this exhibit is made up of six objects from the Stetten Museum collection ranging from unique laboratory glassware, to ticks, to the diary of an early NIH epidemiologist.
