Summary

Every institution has a hidden wiring plan. At NIH, the circuits all seem to connect to Ruth Kirschstein. For more than 4 decades, she and her husband Alan Rabson, both M.D.s and civil servants, have worked and lived on NIH's tree-shaded campus in Bethesda, Maryland. That's a lifetime of service as colleague, friend, and supervisor of the government's top biomedical scientists.
