Managing the NIH Bethesda Campus’ Capital Assets – New Report August 26

The evolving needs of biomedical research and clinical science place high demands on the buildings, laboratories, and other infrastructure involved. Without adequate infrastructure, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) — or any scientific entity — is unable to successfully carry out its work.

Managing the NIH Bethesda Campus’ Capital Assets for Success in a Highly Competitive Global Biomedical Research Environment, a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, identifies facilities at the Bethesda, Maryland main campus in greatest need of repair, assesses the rationale and composition of projects to bring the NIH main campus facilities up to current standards, and evaluates the accuracy of cost estimates for proposed projects.

Advance copies will be available to reporters only starting at noon EDT on Friday, Aug. 23.

The report is embargoed and not for public release before 2 p.m. EDT Monday, Aug. 26.

Reporters who wish to obtain copies should contact the Office of News and Public Information at tel. 202-334-2138 or e-mail
