NIGMS Hosts Workshop on Basic Biology of Stem Cells
'Research at the Frontier'
Liotta, Zerhouni Kick Off Summer Lecture Series for Interns
By Rich McManus
As if cancer researcher Dr. Lance Liotta's talk on inventing new tools to detect cancer-host interactions at their earliest moments wasn't attraction enough, the summer students who packed Masur Auditorium June 11 for the kickoff of an eight-lecture series for interns were also treated to introductory remarks by NIH's new director Dr. Elias Zerhouni, who advised them to follow their imaginations, take advantage of the "largest concentration of top biomedical scientists in the world," and dare to "use the side roads and explore don't use I-95."

Help for 'Diet War' Veterans
By Carla Garnett
If you've ever worried about how much fat to eat, whether you
should diet or the difference between "good" and "bad" cholesterol,
then the recent seminar, "Promoting Healthy Lives: Diet, Fat &
Cholesterol," was tailormade for you. Sponsored by the Office of
Research on Women's Health as part of its 2001-2002 seminar
series, the event featured three experts to present the facts,
and perhaps more importantly refute the
innumerable myths that swirl perpetually around these three topics.
