Re: Dr. Elias Zerhouni to discuss "Back to the Future: Where Will Today's Research Take Us Tomorrow?"

National Institutes of Health Director Elias Zerhouni will discuss research and biomedicine during his lecture at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28, in Shriver Hall Auditorium on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, located at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. The 45-minute lecture will be followed by a question-and-answer period in the Clipper Room.

Zerhouni's lecture is part of the 2004 Milton S. Eisenhower Symposium, "Rebuilding America: Peace and Prosperity at What Price? A Symposium on a Struggling Domestic Legitimacy," a student-run series examining what the future holds for America.

As head of the NIH, Zerhouni is an advocate for biomedical research. Before joining the NIH in 2002, he was a longtime faculty member at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, serving most recently as executive vice dean. Through the years, the multilingual Algeria-born scientist rose rapidly through the ranks at Johns Hopkins, where he chaired the Department of Radiology and served as a professor of biomedical engineering. A complete bio is online at www.nih.gov/about/director/directorbio.htm.

The lecture and reception are free and open to the public. For more information, call (410) 516-7683, visit the MSE Symposium Web site at www.jhu.edu/mse or e-mail mse@jhu.edu.

When: 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28
Where: Shriver Hall, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore
