The latest quarterly issue of NIH MedlinePlus magazine is now available online and in print.
Actor Jim Parsons of “The Big Bang Theory” shares his experience with NIH’s Clinical Center, also known as America’s House of Hope. Parsons recently produced and narrated “First in Human,” a documentary about the NIH Clinical Center that aired on the Discovery Channel.
In addition to covering the NIH Clinical Center, the issue also features—
- The Next Frontier in Antibiotic Resistance—The end of antibiotics? Overprescribed and misused, these wonder drugs are leading to widespread drug resistance.
- The Future of Total Knee Replacement—NIH researchers are looking beyond simply reducing pain.
- Fighting Sickle Cell Disease—New treatment options offer a path to hope.
- NIH Teaming up with Public Libraries for the “All of Us” Research Program—The National Library of Medicine has teamed up with NIH’s All of Us Research Program to gather health data from across the US.
Through feature articles, personal stories, infographics, and more, NIH MedlinePlus helps explain how NIH turns “discovery into health.” This quarterly publication of NIH and the Friends of the National Library of Medicine gives readers news they can use.
