Photos from Dr. Francis Collins Lecture

In a lecture co-sponsored by UIC, Northwestern University and University of Chicago, Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), shared his enthusiasm for biomedical science with more than 600 listeners. At his request, many of those in the audience were graduate students of the three universities. Collins also took part in a Q&A afterwards as well as a reception where he met participants and allowed them an opportunity to talk about their own research or ask for career advice.
