[Perspectives] Roger Glass: celebrating the Fogarty at 50
At the Fogarty International Center, “we’re small, but we’re catalytic”, says Roger Glass, the centre’s Director and Associate Director for International Research at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Fogarty celebrates its 50th anniversary this month and has been under Glass’s leadership since 2006. By training scientists, supporting research, and building partnerships, the Fogarty serves a bridge between the NIH and the global health community. Since its creation in 1968, about 6000 scientists have received research training through its programmes and the centre funds about 500 projects.
