What getting a paper published in a major journal is to a scientist, what landing a fellowship in a prestigious laboratory is to a postdoc, what winning an NIH Director's Award is to an employee here — these successes approximate the pride exhibited by a dozen or so youngsters who visited NIH Apr. 30 for the official unveiling of their artworks, which now grace a small fraction of the extensive construction fencing around the new Clinical Research Center.
