The National Library of Medicine is pleased to announce the first annual Donald A.B. Lindberg & Donald West King Lecture on Wednesday, October 7, 2015 at 1:00 PM EDT in Masur Auditorium, Building 10 in Bethesda, MD. The inaugural lecture, which honors recently retired NLM Director Dr. Lindberg and former NLM Deputy Director of Research and Education Dr. King, is titled, “Integrating Multi-scale Data for Biomedical Discovery and Clinical Implementation.” It will be given by Russell Altman, MD, PhD, of Stanford University. Dr. Altman’s primary interests are in the field of bioinformatics. He is particularly interested in the analysis of protein and RNA structure and function, both in an individual problem-centered manner and on a functional genomic scale. Dr. Altman currently serves as a member of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director (ACD).
