Inspiring and fostering today’s students in STEM careers to serve as the next generation of scientists is important to our nation’s future. To that end, National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins will host a conversation with middle school students to answer their questions about becoming a scientist, and discuss the excitement of pursuing a career in biomedical research. This conversation, featuring Johnson Creek Middle School in Wisconsin, will be livestreamed on Facebook.

NIH is the largest public supporter of biomedical research in the world, investing more than $30 billion in to achieve its mission to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. For over a century, NIH scientists have paved the way for important discoveries that improve health and save lives. Comprised of 27 Institutes and Centers, NIH conducts and supports basic, clinical, and translational biomedical research, and investigates the causes, treatments, and cures for common and rare diseases.

We invite you to stream this Facebook Live on December 10, 2018 from 3:15 – 3:45 pm ET. You can learn more about the event on our event page. Post any questions you have in the comments section during the livestream. Dr. Collins will respond to as many as he can.
