The Fogarty International Center, which coordinates U.S. National Institutes of Health activities around the world, turned 50 this year. A May 1, 2018, symposium reviewed Fogarty research and training programs and explored new frontiers in global health research. In addition to the symposium, a book explores the center’s history and how the HIV/AIDS crisis prompted Fogarty to focus on research capacity-building efforts in low- and middle-income countries. Fogarty at 50: Advancing science for global health since 1968 also provides examples of the center’s scientific accomplishments. To download the book, click here.
