The Celebration of Science, spearheaded by FasterCures and the Milken Institute, convened in early September on the NIH campus to reaffirm America’s commitment to bioscience. Scientific and policy leaders gathered to identify how academia, government and industry can break down barriers to work together to develop open innovations in science that will benefit the public. Actor and Dancing with the Stars champion John O’Hurley demonstrated on the equipment in the Clinical Movement and Analysis Laboratory with NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins and Rehabilitation Medicine’s Dr. Diane Damiano.

The Clinical Center is collaborating with the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warriors Project helps injured soldiers transition from military to civilian life with vocational training services. Corporal Mark Sackett stepped on an improvised explosive device as an infantryman in Afghanistan. After his rehabilitation he spent four months in the Clinical Center Rehabilitation Medicine Department helping with the occupational therapy practice. He is now using what he learned in the Clinical Center as he pursues a degree in occupational therapy at Lord Fairfax Community College.

Researchers in the Clinical Center's Rehabilitation Medicine Department (RMD) are studying an electrical stimulation device designed for children with cerebral palsy who suffer from foot drop and tripping when walking. The WalkAide device stimulates the muscle that lifts up the ankle and the foot on the lower leg. In addition to its success in gait improvement, the RMD team found that electrical stimulation reversed some of the leg muscle wasting caused by the disorder and, in several patients, preserve and increased muscle strength.

The Center for Interventional Oncology will pull on the strengths of each to investigate how imaging technology can diagnose and treat localized cancers in ways that are precisely targeted and minimally or non-invasive. Chief of the new Center for Interventional Oncology, Dr. Bradford Wood, demonstrates image-guided tumor ablation in a CC Radiology and Imaging Sciences suite.

a photo of Elaine Ayres, Dr. Jack Jones, Dr. Jim Cimino, and Dr. Michael Gottesman.BTRIS, the Biomedical Translational Research System, was implemented in two phases in 2009. The July launch of the NIH-wide intramural research data repository allowed principal investigators to view identified data from their active protocols.  In December, intramural researchers were able to access de-identified from clinical and research systems across the intramural program. On hand to help launch BTRIS on July 30 were (from left) Elaine Ayres, deputy chief of the CC Laboratory for Informatics Development (LID); Dr. Jack Jones, NIH chief information officer; Dr. Jim Cimino, BTRIS project director and chief of the CC Laboratory for Informatics Development; and Dr. Michael Gottesman, NIH deputy director of intramural research.
