Abstract

On November 19, 1993, the Senate approved the nomination of Harold E. Varmus, MD, as Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Varmus, who received the 1989 Nobel prize in Medicine, brought unquestioned credentials as a scientist to the NIH. Despite his limited background as an administrator, Varmus has received high marks from most observers for improving the morale of NIH staffers and implementing streamlined procedures in the grant review process. His tenure has not beenfree of controversy, however, Many clinical researchers have long felt there is a bias in NIH study sections against patient-oriented research, A recent study sponsored by the Division of Research Grants confirmed the lower success rate of patient-oriented research proposals, but the outcome of these findings remains unclear Faced with mounting political pressure for a balanced budget, and the resultant reduction offunding to many branches of government, Varmus has been a strong voice for non-targeted investigator initiated research. Interviewed in hisoffice in Building One on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland Varmusdiscussed the state of patient oriented research, the evolving role of the NIH in supporting science, and just where the money to pay for it should be found.
