Zerhouni, Staff Present 'Roadmap' to Bethesda Campus Audience
By Rich McManus
||NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni offers details on implementing the Roadmap.
Launching a communications campaign to keep his Roadmap for Medical Research initiative
well-explained and well-justified, NIH director Dr. Elias Zerhouni
addressed the home team campus employees as part of
a nearly 2-hour presentation in Lipsett Amphitheater on Feb. 20.
A week later, Zerhouni and the panel he has named to lead portions
of the three-element map gave a similar presentation to an extramural
audience at the Marriott in Pooks Hill. These events along
with a dedicated web site, a Roadmap intranet and a listserv
combine to keep stakeholders and the public updated on Roadmap status
and progress, said NIH deputy director Dr. Raynard Kington, who
introduced the employee session.|

NIH Changes Search Engine, Improves Relevance of Results
By Carla Garnett
Ever been looking for something specific online, typed a term into a search engine
and received thousands of irrelevant "hits?" Those results would
then require hours of sorting and sifting often in vain
for the original item. As any Internet user will attest, the best thing
about having so much data at your fingertips can also be the worst thing.
It's an all-too-common dilemma shared by people seeking information as
well as those providing it: How to effectively narrow the World Wide Web.
