Abstract : During the past year Dr. Alan I. Faden was named Institute Director and aggressive recruitment of faculty was initiated. To date, nine additional new faculty appointments have been made. Fifteen postdoctoral fellows and four technicians have also been recruited, and an administrative support staff is in place that includes an administrator and medical secretary. Laboratory renovations have been performed at Georgetown's expense ($692,184) to accommodate the new faculty in an optimal research environment; these include a new research suite in the basement of the New Research Building to house the 7.0 Tesla nuclear magnetic resonance machine, and associated surgical and physiological monitoring space.
